D.R.I.F.T

2012

A selection of images from the series D.R.I.F.T – Do Reflections Imagine for Themselves? Shown in group shows at Gazelli Art House, Subway Gallery and Proud Gallery. Combining the iconic imagery of the femme fatale with turbulent waterscapes. Charlotte Colbert builds on the story telling language of her work creating a loose film noir sequence within the gallery space and giving the viewer clues to construct and imagine a narative of their own. 

Charlotte Colbert is interested in our impossibility to understand outside a narrative structure. The way in which we obligatorily connect and associate sometimes unrelated images and organize them in an order of time to create meaning. Her choice to leave the rebate apparent turns the perspective around letting the viewer reflect on the nature of photography and the nature of film.
