Elsa Oudshoorn et Martin Aleman
He is a director and photographer, writes screenplays and above all loves to tell stories in pictures. On the film side, he talks about Coppola, Kubrick, Paul Thomas Anderson and Wong Kar Wai, to name but a few. In photography, his "fathers" could be Bourdin and Newton, or more recently Norman Parkinson. Although he works for brands such as Louboutin or Givenchy, he only finds his balance by being equally free to create for himself, on the subtle rhythm of a precise and poetic narrative of his own.
She is an artist body and soul, an evidence which accompanies her since her childhood. Her relationship to creation is instinctive and does not follow any pattern or rule. Happy autodidact, it is through curiosity, work and experimentation that she develops her aesthetic and sensitive language. It is about forms, materials, emotions and vision...recently, it is also about meeting, even confluence, with the sculptor Guy Bareff. Together, they imagine creations without restrictions of techniques, which they call "rendez-vous" to evoke the blossoming brought about by the intertwining of their universes.
For Sessùn, Martin and Elsa sought to explore the play between the artist and the act of creation. This often permeable relationship between object and subject. A metaphor with the garment as a body, magnified by a personality. The backdrop is the studio they set up in Hyères, which they call "La Casita", and from where they talk to us about their complementary differences, their spaces and what touches them. A luminous and sensitive coexistence.
