Vavjeniak

Born in 1975 - France

BIOGRAPHY

Revisiting the codes of infant post mortem photography of the 19th century, Vavjeniak presents in his monochrome drawings a beautiful and delicate, yet wounded childhood. The illusion in the drawings reveals silent dolls, blurry Daguerreotype images of the dead. The black and red pencil hand drawings combine with elegance the disturbing the presence of the matter and a more diffuse evanescence.

The universe of Vavjeniak has the antiquated scent of old broken toys and reveals a certain mysterious nostalgia. His characters seem to ask a question, visible on their pursed lips, and invite to whispers, to slowness, to a time of remembrance which allows us to escape the ephemeral.
