Arnaud de Gramont’s photos

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 18 agosto 2011

Paris France 77, rue des Archives From 8 September to 22 October 2011, Ilan Engel Gallery will be showing Arnaud de Gramont’s photos for the first time, alongside works by Eric Michel in an exhibition entitled “Fluorescence(s)”. Ilan Engel will also offer this contrast at his stand at the Slick Art Fair from 20 to 23 October 2011. After working 15 years as an architect, Arnaud de Gramont (born in 1960) became a photographer in 2003. Frédérique Destribats explains: “From his architectural practice, Arnaud developed this deep attraction for both spaces and the light that fashions and sculpts them. He simply changed perspective. The subject matter still consists of spaces, volumes, lines and curves, and materials, but now through the lens of a camera”. Arnaud de Gramont adds: “I am fascinated by light, hence these numerous urban photos of electric light sources: lamps, neon lights, signs, halos”.
In a silent confrontation, Arnaud de Gramont puts the real at a distance, which he portrays as “dematerialized material” through the action of artificial light. He leads us “to question our own perception of spaces, volumes, lights, and colours. To seize the moment or space in the camera’s lens does not mean to freeze it, but rather to give it another scale of time and space that forces us to take a different look”, comments Frédérique Destribats. And through this perceptual prism that touches on the essential, ultimately he relates to the observer’s inwardness.
? Ilan Engel Gallery will participate in the Paris Photo Show from 10 to 13 November 2011. For the occasion, the gallery is preparing a showing (no. A11) on the theme of “Contemporary forests”, a marriage between force and fragility, light and shadow. Ilan Engel will be showing the enigmatic forest edges photographed by Romanian artist Mihai Mangiulea, and Tolstoy’s haunted woods captured by Stephan Crasneanscki. Also present will be the sensitive work of Arnaud de Gramont as he explores the Australian forests in search of the essential.
? Simultaneously, Ilan Engel will also be presenting a solo show in his gallery devoted to Japanese photographer Rinko Kawauchi, in collaboration with the Priska Pasquer gallery located in Cologne, as part of the Paris Photo Show.
