Trouble contains only elusive and misleading aquatic images. Immersed in a dark, water-like environment, the viewer is faced with a quantity of visuals whose subjects have been drowned, liquified and transformed. Initially photographs of our natural environment become modified by a liquid that varies from calm to turbulent with a recurrent presence of drops and air bubbles. These full and empty, light and heavy, circular shapes produce trompe-l’oeil effects suggesting flight and depth, oxygen and drowning.
The installation thus depicts an unusual sensation of submersion which is felt once one is underwater: protective, troubling, timeless, confronting the visitor with the complexity of their own thoughts and memories through a mass of unusual elements.

Isabella Hin develops the duality between the fixed image linked to the photographic medium and the movement of fluids. She underscores the changing qualities of liquids, the way they modify our perception, and links images together. She is interested in the enigmatic and elusive character of water, particularly dark water, in order to link memory and recollections that are themselves changing all the time. Born in 1993 in Paris, where she works, Isabella Hin graduated from the Beaux-Arts in Paris in 2017. A winner of the Agnès b Prize, she has exhibited her work, notably, at the Musée Nicéphore-Niépce, at Paris Photo, and at the Parcours Photo-Saint-Germain. She is currently working on a photographic commission made by CIPGP 2021 on the subject of the River Marne.
