Sainte-Monique

Andrea Peña

The interior world as a conversation with the exterior world. Monique is a complex and layered being, their choices, their demeanor, what is deemed worthwhile of their attention, or not, their eccentricities, emotions, ultimately are a reflection of their inner world in conversation with the exterior one. Through movement study, small and large, we are brought onto a vulnerable journey in the life of Monique, from insignificant moments, to the extremes of on screen emotion. We look for human moments in absurdities, absurdities that are often times not so far from our reality, if we look closely.

Biography

Change. Paradoxically, it can be constant. It is from this duality that Bobby built her trademark as a photographer and director. With as much thought as spontaneity, as much openness as provocation, Bobby takes us, like a guide, to explore subcultures and discover unique universes. Thanks to its avant-garde aesthetic, these emerging subcultures and cultures then connect with the world of fashion and luxury.
