Conducting online keyword searches for famous monuments, Swiss/French artist Corinne Vionnet culled thousands of tourists’ snapshots, and weaved together small sections of the appropriated images to create layered, ethereal structures.
About Corinne Vionnet

Visual artist Corinne Vionnet is based in Vevey (Switzerland) and through her work envisages humanity in relation to surroundings, through the prism of the link with the image. Itineraries are created in her series, within known or common places, which question our collective imagination as well as our more personal connection with the image. Corinne Vionnet’s work thus narrates stories that in addition question the way in which images transform our view of the world.

The high density of the artist’s works of art raises questions about beyond the field of vision, comprising what is not, or is no longer, but also what could have been, which should have been included in the image. Corinne Vionnet in fact dismisses the obvious. Whilst being thought provoking, her works of art question the image as a vector for a social, political or economic reality.
