ABOUT THE WORK
The French duo Suzie & Leo employs technological elements and instruments in a vintage way, creating pictures that transmit an old fashion feeling but at a closer look, contain a very modern and contemporary twist. This versatile but strongly experimental vision finds a fertile territory in the panorama of fashion, where so much is going on between paper and digital platforms and there is lots of space for works crossing territories and navigating in between different aesthetics, allowing them to work in an interesting playground. Playfulness, blurring details, space for contradiction and absurdity are keywords when describing their work.
They use manipulations, multiplications and distortions; erasing and cutting out elements from the images so that the viewer has to reflect on what’s missing, on what’s inside. While metaphysical, this is also very playful of the codes of fashion, where you are supposed to see the model and to see everything all the time. So by hiding some crucial elements, using Photoshop to spray-paint the face and the clothing of the model for example, everything becomes more interesting: it counteracts the overwhelming amount of visual information that we receive constantly, allowing our eyes to rest, and putting our brain into motion.
