alternative landscape by BenoitPaille alternative landscape by BenoitPaille
the project advance !
done with my lovely assistant : Anne-Marie Richard



This is a photography of light installation (real light, real square 1x1 meter) i set in nature or where during the night you have usually no lightning, I try to redefine the space/landscape for my own purpose: create a poetic space/time moment. And questioning the reality of what is a landscape .......... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ........... ............ ........... ........... ........... ............... ........... ............

...... « Par ses gros pixels de lumière, Benoit résume nos villes, notre besoin de lumière pour écarter les sombres inconnues se cachant dans le noir, notre peur de ce que nous ne connaissons finalement peu, notre nature. Nous ne somme finalement qu'un point de lumière autour duquel se masse notre planète, qui nous supporte alors que nous la rendons aveugle. Nous sommes là, flottant dans le vide de notre nombril, illuminant les alentours en espérant repousser les ombres de notre ignorance, de notre incapacité à accepter ce qui nous entoure, ce que nous sommes. Benoit nous joue un tour de magie, et nous cherchons encore à découvrir ses ficelles. Certains diront qu'il n'a voulu que nous montrer un carré de lumière... Non... Il y a plus... Il y a notre vie dans cette lumière, notre propre reflet...» Thomas Marius Tourral, Art Critic

I remember seeing this project posted on Tumblr, and made the mistake of not looking for an artists webpage. I'm glad I noticed it here, because so much of your work is really stunning, in both concept and execution. Can't wait to see what you do next!

Après tant de photos, je me pose toujours la question: comment est-il attaché le carré ?

Merci :)
