Artists Remake the World

The Author : Isabelle Rodriguez

Biography

After a degree at the Sorbonne and a Master’s degree of Arts at the University of Saint-Etienne, Isabelle Rodriguez committed herself in a second cycle at the Nîmes’ Art School where she passed a National Postgraduate degree in Graphic Arts in June 2017, with the jury’s congratulations. She develops stories that she delivers orally, presenting archives – photographs, films, acts of civil or judicial registry – and relating her expeditions across Europe in search of history’s forgotten figures. She chooses to explore further her link to writing by integrating the Master’s degree of literature creation in Le Havre, jointly offered by the University and ESADHaR. Today and in this context, she works on writing a novel that tells, among other things, how an orphanage was completely decimated by the Spanish flu, while going on with her graphic work in her studio of Le Havre.

The British artist, who says with characteristic emphasis that she cried when she heard the results of the referendum in June 2016, proposes a “subliminal anti-Brexit message” in the shape of a declaration of love. Spanning twenty meters, giant pink letters spell it all out above the central clock: I Want My Time With You.
