Elsa Leydier

France, Paris Intervalle

Elsa Leydier (FR, 1988) graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie Arles; she has a master degree in Cinema and Audiovisual Studies, and a degree in Japanese Language. During her explorations of new territories, Leydier is in search of stories and images which will then nuance the dominant representations, put in wrong stereotypical images and iconic views of the territory. Through her two series Braços Verdes e Olhos Cheios de Asas and Plátanos con Platino, Elsa Leydier revisited images and re-inserted them in a flux of montages, collages, and plastic interventions.
