Sébastien Siraudeau : Seeking Vincent or the impression of a landscape


It was a Tuesday. Tuesday May 20, 1890, 130 years ago, Vincent Van-Gogh arrived in Auvers-sur-Oise after having stayed in Arles and Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. He lived there in the northern spring light until July 29, 1890, when he killed himself with a revolver. During the spring of 2019, Sébastien Siraudeau, photographer and author, crisscrossed the territory of the Oise valley dear to the Impressionists, capturing [his] familiar landscapes with moments of light, color, shape, moments that memory wants to keep, other times that it would prefer to forget, approaching little by little the traces of the inspiration of the painters – contemporaries to the beginnings of photography -, approaching the surrounding landscapes of Van Gogh’s last days, from which one always learns from the work and from his own life as the are so contemporary.

In spring 2020, while France has been confined since Tuesday March 17, Sébastien Siraudeau went to photograph a single tree each day for a month, from April 1 to May 1 within the imposed limit of 1 km and for 1 hour. At the same time, he made portraits of those he encountered on his way and who, too, walked to the tree, sometimes without thinking about it. The tree will be shown for the first time at Little Big Galerie with the series Searching for Vincent a few steps from the house of Théo Van Gogh, from Tuesday June 9, 2020.
