Following an invitation from FOTOHAUS | PARISBERLIN to organize an exhibition on the theme Rausch / Ivresse, Claire Laude and Michel Le Belhomme have invited fifteen international positions of artists around the concept and title "Errance Blanche".
"Errance blanche" means the condition when one changes from a feeling of comfort to a confused consciousness and then experiences a feeling of euphoria. "Im Rausch sein" / "être en ivresse" (French) / “to be in a state of euphoria” can also mean the feeling of invincible power and force which rises regardless of the substances one takes.
This euphoria can be compared with a creative force and its emotions. "Errance" refers to this moment of disorder when the body falls and moves back and forth into a different state when the euphoria and its abnormalities begin.
White refers to the substances, e.g. the color of alcohol or drugs. Metaphorically it can also stand for the white blank page of the artist.
Part of the Fotoleggendo 2017 Festival, COSA is an experimental photographic game inspired to the cordless phone, where 40 authors played a silent back-and-forth with images.
Organized by 001 and Luce, the exhibition result of this experiment will open tonight 20 June 2017.
Nell'ambito di Fotoleggendo 2017, 001 e Luce vi invitano alla mostra/evento che svelerà il risultato di COSA, l’esperimento fotografico al quale hanno partecipato più di 40 autori nella primavera di quest’anno.
COSA è un gioco fotografico liberamente ispirato al telefono senza fili, diversi autori provenienti da diverse realtà hanno preso parte ad un silenzioso botta e risposta in cui le immagini hanno sostituito le parole.

When I was 13 is the artwork I made for the project Il sangue delle donne. Tracce di rosso sul panno bianco. , curated by Manuela De Leonardis, that brings together the work of more than 14 female artists on a delicate subject that is still a taboo today. The intention is to celebrate an event that occurs since the beginning of the world and turn the contempt for the female body into vitality.
When I was 13 is related to my body of work M.
When I was 13 I became a woman.
When my mother was 13 learned to do cross-stitch, at the sewing classes for tomorrow' good wives.
When my grandmother was 13, she cut her long tresses and she was no longer a child.
This canvas has been embroidered together with my sister, my uncle and my mother, with my grandmother's (fake) hair. Braiding the threads that tie the female memory of my family, I choose the canvas as a place, a map, an uterus, to confirm my belonging, and at the same time to refuse the past social conventions that used to define what it means being and becoming a woman.
