Swiss artist Renée Chabot morphes her background of photography and architecture into experimental photography. Exploring and dematerializing boundaries of photography is her concept to investigate concrete and metaphysical reality. Working mainly with layers allows her to oscillate between imagination and perception in relation with todays technological culture. Photography is to her a magic awareness tool. A tool, where the connection of us and technology wants to expand into a deeper internal and collective consciousness, that stimulates towards an active responsibility for future generations and the planet. Her work moves between photography, painterly, sculptural and video. She is working between Portugal and Switzerland and her series reside internationally in private collections.
The series In-between is represented by Laura Noble in London
