waiting room (take a seat)

copié du site officiel:

"A la demande du Festival Images, Frédéric Cordier a créé un papier peint à caractère photographique. Il s’est servi de son scanner à la manière d’un appareil photo et de sa lampe de bureau comme source lumineuse. Le résultat suggère l’ensemble des images composant les poses d’un film regroupé sur une planche-contact. Forme de photographie minimale, le travail de l’artiste questionne la nature même de cet art et en élargit son champ."

 

from the official website:

"At the request of Festival Images, Frédéric Cordier has created wallpaper resembling a photograph. He uses his scanner like a camera and desk lamp as a source of light, resulting in an assembly of images resembling the contact prints you might create when developing a film. Presented as a type of minimalist photography, the artist’s work questions the nature itself of this visual artform and widens its field."

 

I don't know what this means. All I can say is that when you sit there a while you start to feel slightly dizzy.

Another view below. Cordier's wallpaper is black and white. I liked the little still life left by whoever had cleaned up.
