'By applying old painting techniques Virginie Bailly creates depth and illusion in her paintings and she challenges the materiality of her installations by turning them into enormous tools for the framing of images: a fragment of a landscape, a photograph, a film or - back to the beginning - a painting. Her desire to frame a space in an image and an image in a space has led to a kind of classic view on today's visual culture: image and space do not hide in excesses, but reveal they cannot exist without each other.'
