The main subject of the work of Garance Alves is the concept of second skin. She is interested in any object linked with the body, such as fabric and garments. The latter are considered as vehicles for fragments of stories.
She also implements protocols which could almost be considered as sociological. She asked different people to participate.
She tries to create inversed portraits.She invites the spectator to have a look at some personal belongings and then to imagine the owners.
The concept of space is also present in her work in various ways. We can observe a simultaneous definition of the body by space and space by the body.
She also tackles the notion of space through memory, the memory of a body at a specific moment while moving. Thus this is a visual fixing of a past action.
This attraction for space and body naturally led her to dance. She tries to capture the movement and transcribe it visually.
