Florence Montmare
Long exposure figurative Photography: 'Illuminations No. 5'

2002

$880

About

'Illuminations started in 2002 when a relationship was slowly falling apart. While trying to save it, we rented a large stylish apartment in Stockholm, and then later one in Arles, France, hoping that a change of scene would have a posi-tive effect. The new spaces made the distance between us more acute, and the inevitable break even more obvious. The ritual of making one photograph each night became crucial to me. I left the camera shutter open for 3 to 8 hours in a darkened bedroom, and as the morning light arrived I interrupted the exposure. It is a private journal, documenting time and memory, where present meets past.' Born in Vienna to Swedish and Greek parents and raised in Stockholm, Florence Montmare has an MBA in Design Management from Linnaeus University, Sweden and studied at the School of Visual Arts. A graduate of International Center of Photography, New York, she collaborated with artist Sam Samore from 2001 to 2004, resulting in photographs, films, books, exhibitions, installations and performances internationally. Examples of projects include the feature film Mirror of Happiness, exhibitions at the Centre National de Photographie, PS1/MOMA and a perfume installation/performance at the Foundation Cartier. Florence works collaboratively and across disciplines, using a transparent process where experimentation and discussions are central to the work. With a background in dance, music, painting and photography, she makes images, films/videos, writings and has created installations, exhibitions, performances, happenings, salons, TV programs, books and catalogs. Between 2010 and 2012 she was an artist in residence at Chashama and in 2015, 2016 and 2017 at Ingmar Bergman's Estate in Faro, Sweden. Florence currently lives in New York City with her husband Ambrose & dog Pony.
