    " "A kingdom of fallen or about to fall angels, but still a kingdom ..." (James Agee). The shift from childhood to adolescence remains a secret passage, a complex and fascinating suspended time. Mireille Loup gives us almost ghostly images, where the characters portrayed, express the expectation of a still uncertain future. In a period of life when the eyes of others create a clear link to existence, her pictures make a wonderful account of this state of "almost asleep" characteristic of adolescence."

    Floriane Doury, curator, Sept. 2015.

    Mireille Loup shows this suspended time which is adolescence. Three characters with hypnotized eyes, suspended bodies and blurred faces on which the spectator’s eyes cannot settle, seem to be bidding their time, in between the bath and the sofa.

    A girl climbs the stairs of a turret (1). Streaks of bluish light escape from the stones, showing her the way to follow. We can imagine that she will prick her finger with the tip of a spindle. As Bruno Bettelheim has so well developed in his book "Psychoanalysis and fairy tales (2) ", Mireille Loup states this somnolence, this transparency awaiting a future where the eyes of others create a clear link to existence.

    Auras and white smoke follow the characters, and give a supernatural appearance to these already timeless places. The term “The Others” hides the ideas of unfamiliar and strange. One remembers the scenario by the same title written by Alejandro Amenabar (3). In this series of pictures, the ghostly presence is reinforced by indirect light and milky hues. Mireille Loup even goes to backlighting extremes that her practice of photography allows her to control to perfection. One will then remember the white images of her previous series “Mem”, where the artist used a veil in front of the lens of her camera.

    Where the dreams of teenagers stretch, Mireille Loup reveals one aspect of life to reconsider.
