Mireille Loup shows her latest project “53.77” at Pobeda gallery. The “53.77” was exhibited at the international festival of photography, Les Rencontres d'Arles 2012, in the Grande Halle. The anaglyphic process enables a three dimensional reading of each photograph using Red and Cyan anaglyphic glasses. Different planes appear in the image which move along with the spectator. The photographs are bichromatic since the anaglyphic Red and Cyan process is being added to the black and white in the 3D sections of the image. The process comprises 6 shots, left and right of the scene, coming together in a single anaglyphic image.The interest of Mireille Loup’s research on anaglyphic techniques is an appealing aesthetic use of blurred images – when seen without 3D glasses- which matches the theme of the series. “53.77” fits in with the logic of the white photographs present in Mireille Loup’s 2009 Mem series that led to The Others in 2011. The Others shows three expressionless teenagers strolling in timeless places, surrounded by nets of spectral lights - a reference to Alejandro Amenabar’s film that goes by the same title. Coming after the supernatural aspects already at work in her previous series, Mireille Loup is reaching a virtual reality that the spectator can choose either to enter or to leave behind using the interactive anaglyphic process.
