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 ARE ASSEMBLED AND 

BECOME FAMILIAR. 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.
