Usual Beauty is a series which has sudden of numerous evolutions and transformations. Started in 1999 and stemming from a work witch became a practice, it remains this day unfinished.
Built around three axes, it gets organized in dyptic, tryptic or polyptic. Walls and grounds, windows and dreamers, contrejours and threads.
It is on this weft for the film esthetics, that the artist makes of the photography a tool of poetic writing. The disturbing and unusual beauties are put here in the honor.
It is a photography which does not question, but observes.
The everyday life is the material in which she cuts to create her images.
A shape which in spite of its cultural estrangement seems to us familiar.
Flore Lagarde maintains the illusion of a ghostly presence, that of the other one or still one somewhere else. Whether it is in slide or has the help of a digital technology, the chemistry operates, the look settles and, colored, out of center, the images form.
The photo is the magic which transforms the pondering into image.
