Les Deux Labyrinths
But it is to be seen firstly as a system, perfect theorem of time and space, of flows and crossings, of borders and intermixing. In this series, I firmly choose to stand “in conflict” with the landscape, as a vision and as a product of space and despite its apparent obviousness I assume it can be put in perspective and thus reinvented. To do so, I humbly place myself in a structural approach of the spectrums of exploration, analysis and experimentation of this visible production.
To experience landscape is to practice it, to place it in contradiction, thus creating a peripheral vision. The visible then asserts itself through deconstruction and alteration. Without moving away from the primary function of an image, which is to show, this series elaborates hybrid and fanciful creatures, images of images, representations of representations, and resonances of multiple echoes. Halfway between dreamt-up images, suspended between documentation and fiction, and a visual experience with floating absurdity and metaphorical irony; reality swiftly moves from obviousness to abstraction, from fullness to emptiness, from mockery to simulation. The visible thus becomes minimalistic, ghost-like, a breathtaking void, a work of fiction.
