Starting with her first great creations and ending in the 1990s, the exhibition took the form of a fascinating subterranean journey to learn about the life of a queen ant (La vie d’une reine, 1962), a land journey during which we observe moments frozen in time in the gardens of Paris (Le jardin de Buffon, 1978-1983), and a celestial journey through the seasons in her etchings.

As Bruno Gaudichon (curator of the Piscine-Musée d’art et d’industrie André Diligent in Roubaix) wrote in his interview with Colette Portal in May 1991, it’s about taking photographs in order to draw better or drawing in order to check the snapshot better, bringing things to life in order to restore its own truth which becomes our own conviction.

Hers is multi-faceted work in which designs, photographs and animation coalesce in a rich and essential synergy.
