Richon, Olivier, 2016, Show, Exhibition or Event, Images Littéraires (Literary Images)

Abstract or Description:

The work explores the relation between image and language through the specific genre of the still life and animal portraiture. It also uses citations that are the equivalent of images articulated through language. The aim of the work is to interrogate Paul Valéry's assertion (1939) that photographic depictions have taken the place of literary descriptions. The photographic work quotes generic still lives and relates them to written descriptions that foreground the process of looking and naming.
