In « Songe d'Oubli », Pia Elizondo is telling us about her dreams, her anxiety and her tiny pleasures.

Light, happiness to be alive, to be able to see, mix with night and fear.

As a reader, driven by her shortened images, bizarre mix of memories, of terrifying insects, of ghost-like mammals, we are caught into the surprising vice that the dream in made up of.

That is how it is, Pia Elizondo photographes her intimate thoughts ; bodies transform into spirits, religious images fight against the gods of night. There is the presence of human beasts in this work, of disappeared civilizations which suddenly resurge, of black wholes from which we come out sweating and relieved to see the day breaking through the louvered shutters. These squared, ringed with black, and smutty photographs, by themselves or combined with another, do not give us any time to breathe : they pull us by the sleeve so that we dive under the gravestone of sleep.
