Time inevitably erases, tarnishes and destroys. We can't control everything: nature takes its course, and objects are bound to be destroyed.
Fanny diverts them from their functions.
Under the artist's hand, they become useless, even absurd.
In this way, she reveals their inherent weakness and underlines it by using a fragile, breakable or perishable medium.
Natural elements are omnipresent in Fanny Lavergne's creations. Plants, flowers and roots mingle with inanimate objects, creating an unsettling harmony between humans and their environment. We are only a part of the ecosystem in which we live.
Fanny Lavergne's works evolve, the material changes, natural or human constraints are exerted on the frozen artefact as it continues its evolution, its journey towards its end.
Through her sensitive work, our vulnerability becomes poetry, our vanity becomes beauty. And this delicacy is a hymn to the ephemeral beauty of life.
