Mireille Loup

MEM [ Photographies ]

from July 6th to September 11st 2011

Opening: Thursday July 8th at 7 PM.

Mem has several meanings. Mem means in French "read-only memory (ROM)", as opposed to the "random access memory (RAM)" of the computer, while in science, Mem (Maternal-Embryonic) is the name of a medical experiment on genetics and fertility. In Hebrew, Mem or the letter M symbolizes the Interior, water, material and mother. 
Mireille Loup works about the woman-mother, the relation to procreation. Ode, suffering, birth, exaltation. 
A majestic woman and a boy of two years old evolve in the rules of the golden section, inside of sets of a great pictoriality. Woman is tied, with the approach of the storm, an Odalisque lying on the lands of a diptych, a fall or a biblical flight amid clouds. We remember, seeing these iconographic images, to The Tempest by Giorgione, or to Et in Arcadia Ego by Poussin. 
But Mireille Loup remakes and undoes history. She bounces off the references and fractures them. A task of blood, covered with hundreds of ladybugs, is flooding the draped robe; a solid blue on the image shatters the harmony of the composition. Among these photographic stagings, some white still-lives, barely legible as they are clear, break the unity of the work. One of them is entitled Angels' square , another entitled what the water has wrested from me makes reference to the painting of Frida Khalo, Lo que el agua me ha dado 
At the manner of art books, the scenographic device shows photos of large sizes sometimes accompanied by Focus, details of the work enlarged. In a separate room, two videos are released repeatedly. "Aesthetically, the videos make reference to the extremely white shroud like images that accompany them. They evoke two preconditions for a child to flourish, the focus of considerable medical and sociological research, especially among premature births and orphans: the need for food; and the need for love." 
This veiled woman, draped in traditional postures becomes a contemporary Mater Dolorosa. Mireille Loup talks about this journey of birth, with rage and poetry, in a device to see to hear, but also to read. Because she wrote on this theme too, with a child book "Como and the Lady" and a novel "The Little Baron."
