Alone in the dark

by Françoise Vanneraud

Alone in the dark is exposed to the public as a “black corridor”, having only one entrance and one exit. Inside the space, the lights are completely switched off, the four walls will be painted in black, having a wall painting in a special white paint only visible with the contact of light. The visitor will be invited to take a flash light and enter the room. Once inside of the space he will be able to discover the wall painting in a gradual way, never being able to see directly the whole picture, but rather the pieces illuminated with his flash light.

The wall painting will have a thematic centred in the narrative possibilities of drawing. A direct medium that I use to build certain ironic and poetic visions regarding the immediate surroundings (and about the artist’s condition). For this purpose, the art work will work as a personal cosmogony that, in a language close to the comic, nourishes from three basic references: symbolism, popular culture and hypertext. A personal imaginary that always plays with opposed concepts (innocent – sinister, naïve – perverse, kindness – evil) to explore the tragicomic character of daily life.
