Spidermadone & co
The jury for the UPP Prize (Union des Photographes Professionnels) /
Central Color 2011 selected a series of pictures by Clarisse Rebotier entitled Spidermadone & co.
Here, little fictional characters survive by rifling through the
corners of an empty apartment, devoid of its inhabitants.
A subject suggesting that these people, more and more present in our
daily life (toys, animation films, promotional objects, advertising…)
would provide an escape from contemporary reality, scraping their way through a consumer society where advertising is everywhere.
The Spidermadone & co series was also selected this summer by the Humor Festival in Italy. She will have exhibitions at Central Color and the Snoop Gallery in Paris, as well as two New York Galleries in Chelsea.
