Le Dernier Soupir

January 5 - February 5, 2011

 

YDA ZIMENT

LE DERNIER SOUPIR

I woke up one morning and thought what if this day is my last day, what images come to mind? I asked the question in French since French is my first language that I spoke as a child. That's how the title of the series came about.

Each day working in my studio I started not knowing what image will emerge out from the Primordial, repressed, fleeting memories of the unconscious. I allowed myself the freedom of indecisions, improvisations, impulsiveness for the image to emerge. Each of my small works attempts to capture a personal moment of the uncontrollable journey that one day ends with le dernier soupir.
