Photographic Season 2016/2017
Tamas Dezso, Vincent Fournier, Grace Euna Kim, Janne Lehtinen, Corinne Mercadier, Christian Tagliavini, Sascha Weidner, La Conserverie
This season's works collectively trigger a wide-ranging discussion on image narration, with photographs plumbing depths that are both imaginary and real.
The works are separated from all rational and predefined logic. The photography attests to several realities that encourage individual and subjective creations.The narrative dimension celebrates ambivalent difference, the unfinished, the vague, the vast, the surrealist, in fact any visual adventure. Worlds converge under its radiance: Documentation encounters fiction in the sweeping landscapes of Vincent Fournier; memories and emotions complete one another with the philosophical thinking of Corinne Mercadier and Janne Lehtinen; illustration joins surrealist thinking within the imagesbyTamas Dezso; a tribute to science reveals itself to be both poetic citation and literary reference in the sculptural and ingenious visions of Christian Tagliavini.
These images manifest a tangible autonomy with respect to the real world and time. Any suspected subversion develops into a positive force, a force that constructs and invents, that diversifies without classifying, that simply tells a story.
