Delphine Lebourgeois often draws armies of women on the mission of protecting something related to childhood: innocence, freedom, rebellion, irreverence.
You cannot be rebellious if there isn’t a flock to rebel against. But in Lebourgeois images the group is often here to protect the rebel. It nurtures it.
It’s about individuality and finding the strength to go against the flow.
It’s also about protecting your inner child.
…my work is intuitive and personal but it’s also very much rooted in what’s happening in society around me”
