Gaëlle Girbes was born in 1976. She lives and works in Paris, France.
Tango is an improvised dance in which both partners walk together towards a spontaneous and an unxpected direction. Gaëlle Girbes provides the viewer with a simple and delicate metaphor of the rythm slowly generated by the body langage. Through the double exposure, her post-digital work captures the geometric basis of the dancer's gesture . Axis and equilibrium points are fragile and tense, modelled on our contemporary social language.
Gaëlle Girbes defines the circus as a projection of our imagination. This black and white series majestically recounts the chiaroscuro's circus world as a regular contrast between light and shadow.
