Patricia Salen was born in Quebec. After studies at Arts Décoratifs in Nice. She became Pandora in 2005. The « temporal openings » not only give her access to both past and future, but also to another level of consciousness that enables her to perform automatic writting, yet codified, that one could see in her works.
It is no longer bodies but fields of vibration; it is no longer brains but encrypted maps that convey a real language. She performs, like Zdenek Kozek, a cataclysmic perception. Her work is hypnotic – and certainly enigmatic for neophytes – but nonetheless artistically jubilant.
