Collograph print | 2017
The loosely defined and shadowy figures of Allié’s collagraph prints evolve in their minimal spaces created for them out of printed discarded packaging and containers. Her characters, unrestrained by their surroundings, live within uncertain landscapes, like they’re hanging by a thread, suspended or on the verge of falling. They question the presence of the body in the city, the ways of inhabiting spaces and the brittle narrative that links us to each other. The figures fuse with their surroundings and turn into lost spirits that become part of a collective mythology of the spaces we occupy daily.
