Werner Amann – Surf Fiction

SURF FICTION is Werner Amann‘s unpublished work from 1997. It engages with social reality and image bound-culture in Los Angeles and other urban centers in the U.S. Beyond a mere documentary or created approach, SURF FICTION interlinks photography with collages, typography, video stills, abrupt breaks and double page spreads – switching with each page turn from one plot to another. The work plays with projections of a myth that regenerates itself from day to day, producing an image of Los Angeles and at the same time a visual reflection on modern reality. Continue Reading →

LE BAL, Paris

« The highway is a loop. From a starting point, you always go back. Sophie Calle, Julien Magre, Stéphane Couturier, Alain Bublex, Antoine d’Agata, here they are, five artists who have hit the road in response to LE BAL’s invitation and with VINCI’s support. Looking for a story, often their own. Anonymous and yet so familiar, the highway became their creative land, their intimate playground. For all of them and for sure, an invitation to find themselves, to get lost… s’il y a lieu. » Continue Reading →

Amaury da Cunha | Après tout

Après tout (After All) represents a turning point in the work of Amaury da Cunha.
His previous series, Saccades (Jolts), was somewhat luminous, infused with a sense of wonder facing the world. Après tout darkens in tone, as wonder gives way to bewilderment. Invading shadows are the backdrop for a photographer depicting himself as blinded. Death and sex are less allusive. A dog bares its fangs, while a bird of prey claws a branch. Yet shafts of light or a glimpsed road suggest that the end is not as impending as we may think. Continue Reading →

The one who dribbles too much

Boubacar Traoré is a musician from Mali, born in 1942, also known by his nickname “Kar Kar” meaning “The one who dribbles too much” – according to his style of playing football.
