Jeanne Aubert is a French visual artist living in The Netherlands.
You can contact her at jeanne.c.aubert@gmail.com for enquiries and commissioned works.

Through photographic series—varying from a few pictures to longer narratives—and through short videos, her work unfolds in phantasmagoric stories or tales, dwelling on imaginary and hypothetical realities. This can range from the depiction of a rare breed of electric birds, vision of an unbound and raw energy, to darker perspectives, where the forgotten animals of ancient cave paintings slowly grow alive, under the gaze of a black sun.
There are not a lot of words in her work, so to speak. She enjoys, rather, the elusive and suggestive quality of the photographic medium. Its silence and its muteness. Not everything must be shown or said.

Starting with poetic drifting, with readings or with a personal experience, her working method is later strengthened by theoretical research—all eventually merging and turning into a singular, fantasized interpretation.

Recently, her long-standing interest for notions of sacredness, of the hidden and forbidden, is combining with another strong underlying concern feeding her work more and more urgently: the destruction of the world as we know it, and its slow disappearance.
