FRAGMENTS Nuit Blanche

FRAGMENTS Nuit Blanche

FRAGMENTS exhibition
from June 1 to 22, 2024
with Daniel Bourgais, Dylan Cote and Pierre Lafanechère

As part of the Nuit blanche 

The Fragments exhibition presents creations by Daniel Bourgais, Dylan Cote and Pierre Lafanechère, focusing on territories and their apprehension through digital tools.

Daniel Bourgais, artist and architect, presents two territorial projects: "La Ceinture, paysages invisibles" (The Belt, invisible landscapes), based on Paris's inner ring road, and "Fragment de paysages" (Fragment of landscapes), created in Courbevoie.
The artist illustrates these urban spaces through point-cloud portraits, created from multiple shots.

Dylan Cote and Pierre Lafanechère, members of the Oyé collective, present two series, Framed Earth and Earthsatz series, in which landscapes are captured from Google Earth, then reinterpreted with photogrammetry tools and staged in 3D universes.

By photographing spaces or capturing them in digital space, using photogrammetry as a post-production tool, they offer a reinterpretation of these territories.

The theme of the fragmentation of reality is recurrent in their respective works, revealing a desire to collect traces of a changing world. These digitized urban landscapes become frozen relics in a dimension between the real and the fictional.

This trend is also illustrated in Dylan Cote's video Fragments, produced in collaboration with electronic music artist Traumer (Romain Poncet), which explores the hybridization of digital artifacts representing rock fragments. These fictional geological elements challenge the boundary between the tangible and the virtual, through digital reproduction.

The dreamlike digital worlds presented in Fragments refer to our collective imagination of landscape representation and composition in photography and classical painting.
However, the disruption of the horizon, the fragmented territories, defy the laws of physics and stimulate our perception of reality, pushing back the boundaries of our understanding of space.
