Luca Curci – When you start practicing art and why?
Sophie Delaporte – I had my first personal exhibition in 2002 at Gallery Marion Meyer and on the occasion of “Le Mois de la Photo”. Drawing, writing and set up images have always been a way to express myself and explore reality.

L. C. – Can you talk about your artistic work? Which are your inspirations?
S. D. Some words from Regis Debray have really inspired my entire photographic work: “We must rehabilitate the invisible”. Everything about vision (the way we see things) interest me a lot. I like to leave some space for imagination, images with different interpretation levels, explore the border between reel and fantasy.

L. C. – What was the best advice given to you as an artist?
S. D. – Keep doubting.

L. C. – What is art for you?
S. D. – I think art is not always where we expect it to be. Today, I really like Andr√© Malraux definition: “L’Art, c’est le plus court chemin de l’homme √† l’homme”. (“Art is the shortest path from one man to another”)

L. C. – Do you think International ArtExpo organisation can represent an opportunity for artists?
