Tout ce qui se voit sous le soleil, 2020
Conceived especially for the festival, the collection of images presented by Thomas Maisonnasse in the form of an installation was drawn from a black-and-white series that he has been assembling for several years. Rather than writing with light, his images wrest from the photograph its layer of shadow: out of all that is captured by the camera, it is only what is in shadow that is preserved. Rather that revealing to us “the visible”, the foliage scenes photographed by Maisonnasse confront us with a universe that is mysterious and impenetrable.
Venue: Maison Farel
