Through a photographer's lens — Fuji TV

In the Japanese travel documentary "Meet Wajima, Japan" we follow New York photographer Florence Montmare's travels to Japan. She ventures to the coastal town of Wajima in a search for art, culture and beauty and to meet local artists. For the project a website was created in addition to a photo exhibition in New York, screenings and talks at the Museum of East Asian Antiquities, Stockholm.

Phantasme is a series of video performances created in collaboration between Florence Montmare and Swedish artist Charlotte Åberg. The series portrays acts of consumption of products such as whipped cream, foundation, hair gel, hair color and ketchup and made into a disguise. Conventional ideas of beauty are violated and the characters are transformed into phantoms of their own desire. 


Performance with clouds

Silent, 2007.  A female protagonist appears in a dreamlike state. Her head is clean shaved. A blue sky with a cloud serves as the only backdrop. The narrative is open-ended and interrupted. She flings wigs up in the air, juggles and captures them with her body.
