Like a zoom game, we propose with this exhibition a walk through the city from the outside to the inside, from the macro to the micro. This game takes place through the work of three emerging photographers, during the photography month in Paris, in the Gallery Géraldine Banier.
With his “Jewels” series, François-René Ducray let us discover cozy interiors, gold chandeliers, moldings, through the splendor of Parisian hotels and restaurants. The strange point of view in low-angle shot and in saturated colors forces us to another vision of those objects. Out of his context, the chandelier becomes a real jewel, self-sufficient it submits itself to the contemplation of the ones who know how to observe.
Fulati Tayierjiang, Chinese artist living in Paris, carries a fresh and light look on the Parisian capital and reinvents the classic images of our monuments. He’s integrating his hand in the landscape and the landscape in his hand, as developing a belonging, an exchange between what makes him and what is around him. We can see in it the touching will of Fulati to keep parts of his travels, and to be part of it. To keep a beam of setting sun in his hand with a picture.
As for Joachim Biehler, he talks to us of another vision of the city, the one of the meetings, of the people and of the star-system that takes place around the contemporary artists. He put an ironic and soft look on the icons that shaped his creation.
