« Pavot » is the first personal exhibition of photographer Inès Dieleman : a book, and prints.
One expected still life shots. One is faced with intimate visions of lively life: an ageless eroticism.
Nicolas Huet Greub, a publisher and an artist agent, was right from the start.
The photographer’s vision flies beyond the obvious. She takes us through a universe of silk and skin toned, expired Polaroid emulsions:
close-ups of petals, of stamens and stems; whirlpools of desire, voluptuous delight.
«Each flower has surrendered, under each angle, has conceded, at each distance, her beauty, her interiority. Blurred, sharp, luminous, in a shadow… One watches and one sees, without knowing why, Goya, Courbet… Then one understands at last: bees and butterflies, starving vampires and lovers in bliss.»
A former art director, Inès Dieleman now is a photographer and a director. She is a benchmark in the fields of luxury and beauty. Her works have a unique touch around the sensual potential of plants and flowers.
Inès Dieleman works for the main brands in luxury: Van Cleef & Arpels, Gucci, Givenchy, Dolce & Gabbana, Louboutin, Dior, Vuitton, YSL, Ruinart, …
She works in the whole world; she lives in Paris and on Mount Etna.
From March 8 to 31 2023, the book “Pavot” and wall arrangements of its prints were on display in Paris at Galerie Éphémère 37.2, Place Beauvau, 92 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré.
