Éléonore Coyette

Éléonore Coyette captures, in her videos, the disobedient heartbeat of the world. Her visual grammar is that of a poetess. Her portraits, dreamlike and organic, connect us to powerful narratives and to the soul of Haiti. The artist invites us to take height to better grasp the depth of beings, to rise on the roofs to recover the beauty of the cities. In this eye, slowness and elegance are magnified with a rare accuracy.
