Fable nous invite à rechercher en toute chose le renversement du connu, à invoquer le vertige, l'excès, la déraison, afin de renouer avec la nature et l’illimité, dans une confrontation brutale avec ce qui est. Le geste photographique tend ici vers le viscéral et l’originel. C’est une méditation photographique sur la dualité de l’être humain, entre élévation et cruauté, entre contemplation et expérience, entre humilité et hybris.

 

Fable invites us to seek in everything the overthrow of the known, to call on vertigo, excess, unreason, in order to reconnect with nature and limitlessness, in a brutal confrontation with what is. The photographic gesture tends here towards the visceral and the origin. It is a photographic meditation on the duality of the human being, between elevation and cruelty, between contemplation and experience, between humility and hybris.
