i liked your selfie because i want to fuck the life out of you
Maia Flore (b.1988, France)
The work of French artist Maia Flore is inspired by what she perceives as the boundaries between reality and unreality. One way to challenge the mundane everyday is to reveal surprises within it, says Flore. Her subjects are young women being levitated by objects. Flore wishes to emphasize the attraction the girls feel towards their new, boundless surrounding, and the lightness of the reality they are entering into. Their contorted movements is meant to articulate a contrast between physical limitation and the limitlessness of imagination.
