Living Images - a conversation with Delphine Wibaux

Through an approach that emphasises experience and experimentation, Delphine Wibaux explores artistic forms that exist at the intersection of photography, sculpture, writing and installation. Her works, which the artist conceives as ‘captures’ (captations), are often the result of recordings or samples taken from various types of landscapes, be they natural or urban. Sensitive to the most intangible aspects of the physical world, she seeks to extract fragments, indices and traces from these sites. 

This attention to the ‘weak signals’ of the world can be found in the discrete, evanescent and unstable materiality of the forms she creates. The works gathered under the title Absorptions thus consist of photographic prints developed using plant-based solutions, which the artist makes herself. The resulting ‘moving images’ continue to change after they first appear on the paper. Delphine Wibaux’s works reflect on the temporality of the image: its emergence, its presence, and its evolution across time. 

The conversation with Delphine Wibaux is organised as an introduction to the workshop she is offering within the framework of the research project Forms of Life on Friday 29 April 2022. 

A graduate of l’École des Beaux-Arts de Marseille (2014), Delphine Wibaux (1991, Pau) has had exhibition in institutions and in the context of various events such as the Villa du Parc in Annemasse (2020), La Friche de la Belle de Mai in Marseille (2020), Les Capucins in Embrun (2020), the Collection Lambert in Avignon (2019), the Tbilisi Art Fair (2018), and Art-O-Rama in Marseille (2017). She regularly participates in residencies and works collaboratively, notably through the duos Todèl and Cadèl.

Delphine Wibaux will be in conversation with the Forms of Life research group. 

Forms of Life is developed by Tina Gillen, Artist, Teacher and Researcher at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, Christophe Gallois, Curator, Head of Exhibitions at Mudam Luxembourg – Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, and a group of students and alumni of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, in collaboration with Mudam Luxembourg.
