Galerie Rabouan Moussion : Philippe Gronon


The Rabouan Moussion Gallery presents, until April 30, 2022, the latest digitized series of Philippe Gronon (martyrs, press frames, photo bath as well as the digitization platform). Three blackboards, pieces produced in 1997 and 2004 will introduce this new sequence of work.

Since the end of the 1980s, Philippe Gronon has been developing photographic work whose starting point is the simplest definition of photography, namely that it is a technique for making images that records reality as it is. . This finding translates into a production protocol. Almost all of the objects photographed (amps, safes, quotation tables, inkstands, lithographic stones, electrical panels, backs of paintings, etc.) or more recently digitized, scanned (martyrs, photographic frames and bath, press frames and scanning bed) are all front view, 1:1 scale. Cut out, they are isolated from any context or any spatio-temporal situation, which gives them a great and new formal intensity. Subjects as much as photographic objects, perfectly reproduced without being fetishes or artefacts, these motifs escape simple imagery. Their flatness and the way they are framed refer to the history of the painting, which gives each photo a pictorial character.
