SANCTUAIRES

Sanctuaires (Sanctuaries) explores our relationship to the landscape and offers a new model that fully asserts its artificiality. Zoos and natural history museums aim to save nature, which has become sacred again. But instead of protecting it, they would rather reproduce the idea. Scientists document it while taxidermists and artists breathe new life into it. Gilles Deleuze says that the simulacrum has a positive power that denies both the original and the copy, the model and the reproduction. We are faced with landscapes that seem to derive their independence from the museographer’s initial intention. My photographs aim to redefine our relationship to a landscape that has become global and composite.
