A sharp look on a cracked up society.

If the expression « to be driving » often means that we are “master on board”, having control on our lives, I show here that it’s not always the case. As in the backyard of a mansion or the backstage of a theater, I propose through this series a point of view on what escapes most of the time from our eyes. Who has not dreamed of being invisible, to be able to see forbidden scenes?

Car’s cockpits are the set I use to depict our deepest states. Stopping time in this private space, “Insides” reveals us as behind closed doors, the intimacy of drivers and their possible passengers, whether it is nice, absurd or horrible. New, second-hand, rented or stolen, the car- as a mirror-carries us as the body is the vehicle of our souls.

This systematic artwork delivers us the human being in all its states.

Fasten your seatbelts and safe journey… (Audrey Pasquet)
