Photography

Holly Bynoe travaille à partir de différent supports, bien que la majorité de ses œuvres soient des photographies, elle explore aussi la vidéo et la juxtaposition textuelle/visuelle.

Ses thèmes de prédilection touchent à l’identité et à la question des héritages dans la construction de l’identité. Elle identifie les questionnements des caribéens et de la diaspora quant à leur espace, à leurs lieux de vie et à leurs lieux d’origine. Elle tente de définir comment se créent les fictions personnelles et ce qu’elles impliquent dans notre quotidien.
Comme Holly Bynoe l’explique, les migrations et les parcours personnels l’intéressent par l’impact qu’ils ont sur ceux qui les subissent : « j’examine les plans, les cartes et les océans pour reconstruire leur histoire à travers mon écriture ; je cherche par les compositions [de mes photographies] à étudier la colonisation du langage et à évaluer les implications des métissages présents et passés ». Ses pièces sont comme des témoignages de trajectoires individuelles.
