This series of stereoscopes are part of a larger project of Florence Marceau-Lafleur, in which she explores the togetherness of the body and its surroundings. As a metaphor for this topic, she takes her side-job as an art model. Each of the spaces are rooms where she has worked, and where the tradition of life drawing is still carried on. Within this material context, she actualises the actions which she has imagined while sitting still: insufflating life into the skeleton of the anatomy class, visualising one’s own body volume as a collection of exhales, or exploring the inwardness of a Greek torso. The naturalistic context of the life class is metamorphosed into a less binary world, which reflects the model’s contemplative experience: the self is no more ‘in there’, the room is no more ‘out there’.
The stereoscopes have been previously shown at De Vishal (Haarlem), Prospects (Art Rotterdam), and on a more discrete note at Big Art 2022.
