Black Wasser II
These works focus on the combination and fusion of the past and present, the near and the far, the natural and the human, intertwining what is other and what is one's self. In all of them, Franchy re-examines the images and texts of the archive, repeating them, reproducing them and reprinting them, while juxtaposing and complicating the relationships of localities, architectures and landscapes with which she identifies, as well as of time, creating new and strange topographies always animated by a sort of precarious balance, quasi-apocalyptic and dense, even when transparent and dispersed; a signifying framework giving shape to a physical as well as mental construction.
