Invisibles monde visibles
The general form of the work evokes a feather headdress, very similar in its composition and in its crafting of Kayapos, a tribe already settled on the lands at the arrival of the Portuguese and French settlers. However, the landscape drawn by the accumulation of photographic fragments is more urban than natural. Colored buildings have replaced blue macaws. Juliette-Andréa Elie evokes with a poetic vision the urban and human transformations and the deforestation that gradually leads to the disappearance of the Amazonian tribes.
Two different headdresses are currently available.
The photographic fragments of buildings (close-ups) taken in Sao Paulo are printed on matte paper and tracing paper and sewn in layers. They have replaced animal matter as feathers. Inside the landscape, a feverish tree presence (the flamboyant red) tries to break the concrete. A duality settles in us: attracted firstly by the seductive appearance of the object in colors as bright as those of the parakeets and macaws of the Amazon, one is then surprised to note that they come mainly from urban elements. Finding a territory with invaluable natural resources that are destroyed massively for the benefit of urbanization and intensive agriculture. The loss of this natural environment, like the primary forests, leads de facto to the disappearance of peoples and animals living there.
Like a hope, the artist places the adornment at the human level: by contemplating it the spectator suddenly becomes one with the landscape. First step to regaining consciousness that we are responsible for our environment because in perpetual physical connection with him.
