The gallery also seeks to support its artists in the production of particular works in a vision of curatorial activity around projects of personal presentations and exciting confrontations. Aiming at dynamic support of contemporary creation and promotion of artists the gallery has adopted a form of mobility and flexibility using current means of communication favoring a presence at events such as Art Fairs and temporary exhibitions in France and abroad.

[FR] Noorforart Contemporary a été fondée en 2012 par Jean Louis Ramand à Aix en Provence. Découverte et Promotion des artistes étant au coeur de son ADN, la structure devient une galerie en 2014 et s'intéresse à la jeune création contemporaine mais aussi à des artistes déjà établis issus d’horizons géographiques, culturels et...
Her method was derived in part from the early filmmaking technique of matte painting, where backdrops were painted on sheets of glass and integrated by the camera with the live-action on set.
She builds up the image in her studio using cut-out fragments of source material, which she makes into small stage sets on glass panels. She then re-photographs the sets and manipulates the images digitally, an act of reprocessing which takes them further away from their original context and broadens the narrative potential.
Her source material is drawn from an archive of collected imagery, which includes her own photographs of abandoned buildings as well as material collected from old books and magazines and fragments of paintings.
She works intuitively with the material, finding points of connection between details, either through shared subject matter or formal considerations such as following the path of light from one image through another to create spaces, which at first may appear real but on closer inspection begin to dissolve. She plays with anomalies – of texture, surface, depth, space, scale, movement and architecture – to involve the viewer in the construction of the image, and to make them question it. In the finished work there is often an uneasy sense of a space that does not quite fit together - either formally or conceptually, but possesses a reality of its own. One which we are unable to pinpoint as factual or fictitious.
She reveals through her images her personal travels between dream and reality, between today and yesterday, exploring time and memories. Sabrina Biancuzzi is a photography Teacher, she has animated workshops and courses for more than 8 years.
[…] There are works, dark and luminous, of a gentle melancholy, which invariably have the language of the intimate. The magnetic work of the artist Sabrina Biancuzzi takes us step by step into a mysterious, strange and ghostly universe. […] There is a magic in these « clichés », an exacerbated sensibility contained in a church silence. Attendances are absent, and from these absences Sabrina Biancuzzi weaves the thread of life. She speaks to us of these intimate and dear, distant or disappeared places, of those beings who have gone away but are still talking to us. Passages of life, lost childhood and a gone golden age. She fixes this beauty of disenchantment, that dust of time, these vestiges frozen by some ghostly presences that remind us of our presence in the world, our human condition. […]
For more than two years I photographed the lunar cycle in its different phases.
The 28 images in this series are an echo transposition of the life cycle.
The subjects are photographed in the dark or captured in the moment with the least possible light using the techniques of light painting then digital. The materials are made with ink and charcoal.
Symbol and witness of the intimacy of subjects, chiaroscuro protects and reveals, shows them in their nudity the simplest - the most true.
About the Artist :
I create art in response to emptiness, to the complex or distant relationships between nature, modernity and invisible.
My photographies choreograph abstract characters, solitary or detached, in a narrative scene. Imagery is poetic, the rich or desaturated colors are emotional. The compositions, the perspectives are oneiric. Ethereal sensation is omnipresent.
Each image, each image’s fragment is photographed, staged or sampled. It will be used as pattern, as material. This process is a deconstruction of the visible world to reveal his archaic functioning - to get me closer of the poetic raw matter.
These scenes are vision, they reveal a space of sensible imagery, where profane stand alongside sacred, where notion of modernity and humanity are blend.
These visions aim to mark esthetically and intellectually - to leave emotional marks.
She is, undeniably, an archaeologist, but her field of investigation is that of a fleeting present, that of fragments and dust of instants that have just passed, gestures that are not quite accomplished, coagulated even before they are completed.”

She draws her inspiration from Alfred Hitchcock, Edward Hopper, Wong Kar Wai, and Erwin Olaf. The polar and the oppositions of colors thus hold an important place in her creative process. Fictions, staging, design and vintage atmosphere are articulated in her narrative series. She attaches importance to details, each photo must distill clues, which allow the observer not to remain a simple spectator but to tell a story.

SERIES " COMME UN POISSON..."
Like a fish is a self-portrait series taking place in abandoned places and is rooted in a photographic discipline called urbex (urban exploration).
Like a goldfish in its bowl, the character in a red dress is like a forgotten object in these abandoned places. Like the goldfish, she is not comfortable; she is withdrawing into herself, trying to ignore the world around her, denying the overwhelming decay. In the end she becomes a small red dot surrounded by wallpaper, no more than a decoration.
