New Zoéland, or the immersive journey in the whimsical head of the artist Zoé Sauvage via drawing / painting, video, installation. The country visited: an island cousin of New Zealand. What more natural that this imaginary country emerges in Iceland, at the almost exact opposite of the planet through the center of the earth?
The intention of the artist is to glimpse, through plastic experimentation, the links between man and the natural landscape visited, focusing on the character of the tourist, the traveler and his dream, his fantasies, and taking here as a starting point the personal journey of the artist on the hiking trails of New Zealand.
The artist explores our tendency to think of travel as a symbolic metamorphosis, with the construction of a personal mythology, which became almost vital in a current world more and more devoid of rituals.
