Growing up in the 70′s in a working class family, much of the time we used what we had and lots of imagination in our daily play. My brother & I would regularly create “cars” out of cardboard boxes and I distinctly remember creating an entire make-believe floor plan out of fallen leaves. The work of London based photographer Noemie Goudal reminds me of how easily our imaginations are transported as children.
Goudal’s work recalls the magic of blanket forts and tin can telephones. Taking us back to a time when just a shape or a line sparks our senses to conduct us into a new fantasy world filled with possibility.
The artist uses simple props and imagery to create imaginative installations that seem to capture portals into a completely different world, a world that seems to leak out, blending the imagined with reality in the same magical way we did as children.
