About the artwork

Meticulously staged in a retro style with shimmering colours, the photographs of French artist Chloé Meynier explore the roles, vulnerability, and identities of women. She has entitled this series Wait until Dark. This collection of images was taken from unexpected angles and it is charged with an ambiguous narrative. Gentle melancholy and tensions between unseen challenges, intimacy, identity, and agency… It is up to the viewer to assemble all of the elements to imagine the fate of these fictional characters.

Anecdote

Abandoned Dreams explores the roles of women in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, and deals with loneliness, emptiness, vulnerability and uncertainty. The images show women caught in relationships where love has fled and the meaning of life has become blurred. They are waiting for someone or something to change, move or be changed. Each photograph offers a context and conveys a story, but the absence of another character gives the feeling that part of the story has been ripped out and invites the imagination to fill in the gaps.
