Arles 2020 From day to day by Thierry MAINDRAULT
In this very special 2020 summer, the courtyard of the Archbishopric of Arles will not be completely orphaned of its many photographic and festive nights organised by Voies Off. To fix the spirits and its presence Voies Off asked Antoine d’Agata (the first winner of its first competition in 1996) to kindly present the remarkable work he could imagine and achieve during the forced intermission of confinement.
In an exceptional installation, eleven screens will be installed and will show a moving construction of views and sounds during the nights of the 3rd and 4th of July 2020.
The title of the event, “Virus”, is now an universal banality for each of us in our world today. The fact remains that the work that is offered to the public is of an attractive originality as all line of creative work by Antoine d’Agata. During this long period of deserted street both in the countryside and in the metropolises, but of overloaded hospital services, the photographer left to seek the life of his witnesses through thermography. It is this technique of the photographic tools which, in this adventure, allows everyone to see and feel objects and people from deep inside their own soul.
