Pauline Alioua

Paris-based photographer


Fall 2015 SomoS Artist in Residence, Photographer Pauline Alioua joined SomoS from her home in Paris. The young artist stayed at SomoS for three months to continue her “personal take on impersonal landscapes.”

Pauline Alioua is inspired by the tensions between the man-made and the natural, and the objects and people at the periphery of our perspective. Her current work focuses on the traces left behind by lovers in the landscape, puddles, scratches, broken tires, these poetic objects that tell a story of doubt and wonder.

SomoS presented Pauline’s AIR project Phantomatic / Nowhere To Be Seen, consisting of thirty black and white photographs and sound installation on love and loss, April 2015.
