Camille Bonneau’s artistic practice is grounded in her fascination for psychology in juxtaposition to spirituality. By combining photography with a variety of mediums she explores the intersection where themes of life and death intertwine and mingle with femininity and seduction along with the weariness of daily repetition. She mainly works with photography, placed in diaries, travel journals and artist’s books, alongside texts, drawings and fragmented archives. Her creative process – beyond its autobiographical aspects – are primarily humanistic, since its annotation of everyday life refers to a universal need in humanity to represent the course of time and life. She possesses the ability to open her viewer up to a larger perspective on the world as she turns extramundane situations into existential contemplations.
Camille Bonneau is a French-Canadian artist who moved to Luxembourg in 2015. Since then, she has earned a Bachelor of Arts in Photography from the Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. During her studies, Camille grew as an artist and adopted a deep personal narrative. She’s a versatile artist who has a very minimal approach to her creative process. She first started drawing and painting in a small school when she first arrived in Luxembourg and as she continued to travel she started to associate collages, texts, dreams, drawings, photographs, first in her travel diaries then in a daily journal. She likes to explain that her work contains nor heroes and nor villains therefore making her art extremely relatable to her audience.
