Edition 2019




In the beginning is the two. Placing two photographs side by side immediately provokes a certain perception of the whole thus constituted. A silent language of successive echoes falls into place, one that must be felt rather than understood, if we seek to conserve and take part in the intrinsic mystery of a work. Two photographs, then three, or more: as the number grows so does the complexity of form and meaning. The images within a work respond to one another, just as individual works communicate across an entire exhibition. This show is principally composed of new pieces, joined by older ones, and for the first time, drawings. The intimate entanglement of life and works of art characterizes this exhibition, yielding delayed contemplation.

Exhibition coproduced by Centre Photographique Marseille and Mécènes du sud Aix-Marseille.
