Musée Hebert La Tronche : Denis Rouvre : Ground Zero


Denis Rouvre is showing an exhibition entitled Ground Zero at the Hebert La Tronche museum in Isere (Near the French Alps). It is presented as follows:

The photographs presented come from the Ground Zero project, the title of which refers to the point of impact of a bomb. Carried out in 2020 in partnership with the Emmaüs Défi association, this project was designed and carried out by photographer Denis Rouvre, who imagined, through individual and collective portraits, a new, post-apocalyptic world, where new codes and other social relationships are invented.

This work was carried out with supervisors and reintegration employees from an Emmaüs community in Paris, who embodied these new heroic figures immortalized by the artist. Relying exclusively on the material remains and textiles collected by Emmaüs, the fruit of collective generosity, the bodies are transformed and the magnified portraits tell new stories. Through his mastery of composition, color and light, the artist sublimates these offbeat portraits, thus bringing out a powerful plastic beauty.

Denis Rouvre questions our society: the way we look at others, the relationship to consumerism and the aesthetics of waste. Through his artistic approach, he recalls the power of creation, which invites metamorphosis.
