Mireille Fauchon

MA work

My narratives are primarily concerned with time, place and memory, addressing not only the triumphant and melodramatic but also the quiet, seemingly insignificant passing moment. Very much inspired by personal and local history, my work often plays upon the commonly felt anxiety to preserve and protect the recent past - a phenomena often resulting in a blurring of the distinctions between fact and fiction. With an emphasis on the mysterious, fantastic or transgressive, my work strives to challenge the subjective nature of memory questioning what, how and why we remember.
