Sophie Apécéchéa would expose her work during the
Brabandt 1998 year no less than three times. Each time with mostly different work and
another way of exposing. She begins with simply hanging her newest photowork on the walls.
To get an idea of what is visible, it's important to know that photography is used as an
autonomous medium. The works spring forth from her impulsive workdrive and weren't, or
were hardly at all, rationally constructed. For this new work she has again hardly left
her house. We will show images of tableaus and still lifes which are visible in many a
house, but through her approach of the medium originates an intimate atmosphere. Later
that year she will show video and filmprojections and an
Her work consists of spatial images, installations
with filmprojetion and stories. In all these cases the point of beginning is the fairytale
like dreamworld that lies hidden behind the reality of every day life and her crosspoints
with this reality. In her spatial work she often uses light, vulnurable material, like
sugar, paper and wax. In this way fragle, almost transparant images evolve thus having a
link with filmprojections, considering that film for her is equal to sculpture, made from
the most fragile of all materials, viz. light.
Her work is the result of an attitude and way of
thinking which are continuosly present, with as a source the abundant load of free images
of everyday life through advertisement, pictures, tv scenes, shopping bags etc.
