Hostilités Sourdes

Hostilités Sourdes

The obscurity of the night appears ominous. We hurry to get home, we avoid being out alone. Since our childhood, we have been mistrustful about the night. Since childhood, since the dawn of time. Myths, legends, tales, thrillers and cinema use and educate this fear. They build deep inside us mental images linked to this fear, preconceived ideas. We can imagine we will face a danger at each corner of a street. We don’t need to live the threat to feel it. Our visual culture awakes our imagination and the empty spaces get disturbing.

夜幕昏沉叫人忐忑。步履倉促,急忙回家,不想獨自留在外吧。大概自兒時起,從古自今的神話、傳說、驚悚電影所育成的我們內心對黑夜的聯想,跟恐懼連繫了。走在幽黯的街角會有點惴惴不安,就是視覺喚醒了想像,舉凡是空蕩蕩的地方也會惹人多想。


Kathleen Meier was born in 1992 in Metz, France. Graduated to the artistic school Condé, her photographs are psychological. Through her subjects she reaches our mental activity, brings out our feelings, forces us to face our fears and desires. She appeals our imagination so that everyone have a full part to play in her work. In 2015, she release her first book at APR2 Publishing on the series Hostilités Sourdes.
