Amélie Desjardins

“Life is a passage that transforms us” Amelie Desjardins

The works of Amélie Desjardins brings the viewer to the border between dream and reality. They express the passage from this world to a world of poetry.

Her approach is based both on the recovery of driftwood and a lyrical vision of the passage of time. To find the materials she uses, Desjardins lives to travel, always seeking out lost treasures during her ocean crossings. Skimming beaches around the world in search of wrecks and stranded treasures, she builds her works from the wreckages of bridges and boats, juxtaposing poetic images on these reclaimed structures.

Her body of work can be seen as an allegory of the life of a tree, giving it a unique tribute. Highlighting every stage of its life cycle, Desjardins’ artworks evoke a certain nostalgia. Fire, sand, sea and wind are all elements that alter the evolution the tree, emphasizing its uniqueness and transforming its individuality.

From tree, to wreck, to artwork, Desjardins masterfully highlights the nomadic nature of the tree’s existence. Demonstrating that life is a passage that transforms us out of necessity, that the life cycle is not one linier construct. The work emphasises the transition, the accumulation of scars, fossils, and memories through the passage of time.
