STÉPHANIE SAADÉ’S WORKS TAKE AS A DEPARTURE POINT THE MOMENT WHEN ONE BECOMES ESTRANGED FROM HIS SURROUNDINGS. THE ARTIST EXPLORES THE SHAPE, OR THE

SHAPES OF DISTANCE, AND MAKES THEM VISIBLE, AS WELL AS THE CHANGES IN SHAPE OF THE INDIVIDUAL THAT GOES THROUGH THIS ESTRANGEMENT. A PROCESS OF ARTIFICIAL

NOSTALGIA IS DEVELOPED, THROUGH WHICH STRANGE LOCATIONS, FAMILIAR TO THE ARTIST, ARE ASSEMBLED. THE NATURE OF LINKS IS QUESTIONED, THEIR PERSISTENCE OR THEIR

EPHEMERALITY. THE CREATED KNOTS AND TIES FORM PAIRS, WHICH NEVER BECOME DOUBLES. SINGLE OBJECTS ARE COMPOSED FROM DIFFERENCES BROUGHT TOGETHER.
