« Oh LALA ! »

In the ancient time, the sacred was adorned by féminine forms and attributes. Nature and woman belonged to the magical world of wave and the force of life. The Lala are the 8 enchantresses of this world. They express the holiness of their bodies and their heart in the magic poems, performances and art work.

Aima becomes involved in the pursuit of forms and curves revealing a sensuality similar to her own inner being. Very touched by the expression of femininity, this artist leads us into a universe where women become goddesses, where erotism flirts with purity. Always in search of expression, Aima establishes a direct relationship between the sensuality of the world in which she evolves and that of her own body, staging them in a series of videos, and photos.
