Caroline Delieutraz works with material that is abundant in our society of information : images and other data, circulating insensitively through the flow of international electronic networks. The origins of this data, the way it appears in public space – including the internet – its exploitation, transformations and successive reuses, its death and rebirth, all form the focal point of her work. Every day, Caroline Delieutraz gathers all kinds of material available on the web and manipulates it, in an attempt to occupy this constantly fluctuating world in her own way. Even though she perpetuates what could be referred to as the erasure of the “original”, a relative concept in a copy-paste world, she never negates the origin of this data or the work that others have accomplished. On the contrary, the source of the images are an integral and significant part of her work. Caroline Delieutraz moves and reshapes the information she extracts from the system in an effort to question the authority of these images that seem so familiar to us that they have become certainties. By constantly jumping from the so-called “virtual” world to the so-called “real” world, Caroline Delieutraz’s different pieces take on the appearance of digital and analog vehicles, the mysterious hybrid elements that make up the data.
