Seeing the universe at the edge of a new light. A thin light illuminating borders between two worlds. A temporary relief in front of an everlasting natural beauty. This is the Skin Of Their Light. Unfixed in time, ever changing under our gaze, a hypnotic and unsettling state. Nature offers us frames to other lights.
Diane Drubay is a French Berlin-based video, photography and installation artist who investigates psychoactive and transcendental experience expanding the idea of sublime with images of Nature. Since 2013, she has been working on creating a single video tracing the different stages to reach the ultimate transcendence through Nature by compiling hundreds of impressions of the rising and setting sun. Representing one step on her path to transcendance, each of her series is a cognitive enhancer, a source of regenerative high consciousness by touching the authenticity and feeling powerfully alive.
Her fascination started while waiting for the golden hour in the garden of Claude Monet at Giverny to capture the awakening of the Nature and its changes over months (serie ‘Monet’s Secret Garden’).
She believes Nature gives us frames and patterns to reflect and expand our minds, to see our surroundings in clarity with new perspectives and understandings. By showing the real and the unity of being in the trail of the Ideal, Nature shows Humanity how to transcend themselves.
Within collaborations with musicians, her work explores the immersion of the the audience facing a real time recomposed and decontextualised landscape whilst diving into music that follows the rhythms of nature.
In 2017, Diane Drubay did a 3-month art residency at the Berlin Art Institute. She has worked for 10 years for museums and curate professional museum events.
