Béatrice Coron, figurative paper cutting
Stories give meaning to everything, from mythical legends to journalistic reports, from marketing strategies to political ideologies: the story is always for free, and it’s the bait, the cure and the hope.
For the last 15 years, I have been exploring visual storytelling in artist books, paper cutting and public art. Collecting memories from individuals and communities, I stage narrative allegories in silhouette to create a dialogue with the viewer in playful fantasies.
These visual chronicles record archetypal stories that transcend time and space. My goal is to invite the public to pause and bring their own ideas finding personal interpretation to reclaim their imaginative powers.
