Anne-Laure Fuchs – Autarchy

by Anne-Laure Fuchs

“ I made a personal experience that I documented. I lived alone for 5 days shut in an empty bunker room. I wanted to suggest the idea of being trapped but it is something closer to voluntary confinement. I had a limited set of materials with me as constraints. The physical conditioning and the psychological conditions generate compositions. Anxiety can create repetitive behaviors and a kind of obsession that resulted here in the installations. I also considered the wall in the same way a designer considers the blank page, and the confinement and limited working materials as an illustration of the constraints one finds in design.” Anne-Laure Fuchs
