A world, points of view, new worlds.
For the first time in its walls, the Autour de l’image gallery presents the works by six contemporary photographers in the group exhibition Un Notre monde.
Pascal Baudry, Marc Donikian, Thiago Facina, Michel Jaget, Olivier Kurcz and Bruno Paccard are artists with sometimes quite different universes, some using color or black and white, panoramic formats, square, small or very large. In the same way, these six artists work as much figurative as abstract photography, sometimes blurring the border between the two.
Thus, Thiago Facina raises its objective towards the urban sky where the roofs of the constructions of the favelas are cut out; Michel Jaget photographs feminine nudes close to abstraction, which defy the imagination; Olivier Kurcz and Bruno Paccard remind us of the subjective photo of the 20th century (we think in particular of the close-ups of Jean Dieuzaide and Aaron Siskind interested in pitch and paint chips). Marc Donikian photographs a nature in color, dreamlike and moving; Pascal Baudry is interested in emptied spaces, where traces of passage sometimes remain. But these artists, whether photographing nudes, landscapes or architecture, are primarily interested in forms and materials, exploring with their tools the world around us.
Because if their aesthetics and their interests vary, their common point and the subject of this exhibition remains their relation to the world. A daily world, full of shapes, materials and colors, which they interpret and transcribe according to their eye, their framing, their photographic tools.
The play on word of the title of the exhibition, Un Notre monde [“An Our world”, when pronounced in French “Another World], insists on the possibility of an otherness, of a difference, but also of a common point: how, with our eyes and with others, we talk about the world in which we all live.
