Daphné Le Sergent. Geopolitics of the Oblivion
Satellite 11 programme
from 05 June 2018
until 23 September 2018
Concorde, Paris

Born in Seoul, South Korea in 1975, Daphné Le Sergent lives and works in Paris. Her work contains an artistic and theoretical exploration of the notions of scissions and borders. This work has led her to think about the concepts of arrangement and strategies in contemporary artistic creation. She makes use of fragments of texts and poems, segmented drawings, photographic diptychs and video sequences, all of which are intended to challenge the subjectivity that underpins the image, connecting one element to the other.

These fragments highlight a connection which paradoxically maintains a sense of separation. In Le Sergent’s work, the ‘I’ seems to be the thing that separates the world into two parts, in the manner of a partition or dividing wall, as thin as a line of text.
