Laura Gwenaëlle Berson: Percipere

Laura Gwenaëlle Berson: Percipere
International Photography Grant 2019

Percipere is, in a way, an image of the experimentation of a metaphysical doubt in a concrete way. The construction of reality, whether internal or external, goes through our five senses. Since these senses are disorganized, our perception changes. This phenomenon, called derealization can occur for example during trauma, prolonged exposure to excessive stress, depression, temporal epilepsy. That’s when this mist appears between you and the world. The impression of a meaningless world. An ephemeral memory, a blurred reality. Multiple realities possible. Is my body well connected to my mind? While it seems to me that a dissociation takes place? A phase opposition in which the being is canceled. An interference between two beams of light that extinguishes the being. A point of balance to find at the crossroads of these two points. To be in the world. To feel part of the world. How to return to ice what is lava, how to return to the atmosphere the magnetic fields that wave on the ground? How to realign my consciousness with the frequency of reality?

Laura Gwenaëlle Berson was born in Paris. She studies comedy, script-writing and cinema. It is a few years later that she is moving towards a more intuitive photographic, plastic and writing work, enabling her to express everything she knows just as much as the others, with the aim of finding The essence of something. Emphasized by matter and form, great as well as small, imaginary as concrete, its work oscillates between everything and nothing, here and there, where it moves, as an atom (or electron it is according) free, amongst others. It is through her unreasonable syndrome of hyper-sensitivity that she struggles in a totally emotional, sensory, and uncontrolled way, orienting her work towards identity research, the place of the individual in the world, through body and consciousness. She exhibited in a solo 2015 in the Maison de la Mixité of Paris, and she was present at Fotofever Emerging Talent in November 2016.
