A first series, depicting the great North which transports to Harbin, on the frozen edges of the Sungari river. From these white lines, frozen in time, she has brought back a series entitled “Winter Tales.” For her “Summer Tales”, it is always in China that the young woman takes us, on the beaches of Qingado, Beidaihe, Yantai and Dalian. Here, the skyline, confused between sky and sea, is lost on these seaside resorts from the sixties. For her work, Catherine Henriette is inspired by traditional Chinese paintings: “tiny characters who walk in the midst of the grandiose landscapes (…) where space is as important as material, where emptiness is as important as full. » Images full of poetry to be discovered by appointment only.
