Exhibition L’Envers de la Venoge des vers au vert from October 10, 2019 to March 29, 2020

This work of exploring the Venoge, this entirely Vaudois river, aims to take the spectator beyond the ordinary and to reveal the hidden beauties of this modest river. The Venoge, made famous by a poem written in July 1954 by Jean Villard (Gilles), poet, singer, actor, Swiss writer and composer, is a bit like the temperament of the Vaudois, reserved and fond of taking his time. It therefore took many forays along the forty-two kilometers of its course, on its banks, in bed and underwater, for it to open up to my gaze and reveal its intimacy and poetry.

If you share my passion for nature and photography, you will find a lot of pleasure in discovering the exhibition “L’Envers de la Venoge, des vers au vert” at the Maison de la Rivière in Tolochenaz until March 29, 2020.

The idea of a collaboration with the Maison de la Rivière was initiated in 2018 following my exhibition “La Venoge: in the intimacy of its hidden poetry”, on canvas outside, at the bar La Coquette in Morges.

On the way to the Maison de la Rivière you will be greeted by a meeting between two languages of poetry, that of the words of Jean Villard Gilles and that of my photographic work (partly underwater).

This exhibition marries art perfectly – I share the space with naturalist photography enthusiasts Pascal Engler, Christian Genton, Aurélie Rubin – and scientific knowledge. It will undoubtedly delight every visitor as well as families.

Do not hesitate to contact me if you come in a group and want my presence.

Hope to meet you there.

Tempus, Spacium, Existentia

The project “Tempus, Spacium, Existentia”, presented as part of the exhibition “Un après-midi à Ropraz” at the Fondation L’Estrée, is a work of photography whose material is the soap bubble. It brings us back to the past and our childhood but also expresses the fleeting present moment and the fragility of fleeting life. It is our inner world or a planet in the Universe and expresses the relationship between time, space and life.

Exhibition “Un après-midi à Ropraz”, Foundation L’Estrée, from July 7 to August 3, 2016, bringing together six artists expressing themselves in various disciplines.

Focus, Corpus, Illusio, a work on a priori, appearances and illusions:

..

“Focus, Corpus, Illusio” is the stage of observation and a journey. Some elements of our immediate environment, a bit like a point that we fix for a long time and that sees everything around it fade, eventually become invisible to us.

This photographic work without digital manipulation focuses on familiar matter and bodies, our body food, in order to question our illusions and our preconceptions. It propels us into the world of appearances, confronts us with the truth and our certainties and is transformed into nourishment of the spirit.

“What you see is not what is”

The photography sometimes takes the form of an oil, acrylic or airbrush painting, sometimes that of a charcoal or chalk drawing. The canvas, normally dedicated to painting, participates in the illusion.

This work of introspection leads us through universes like Genesis and our origins and returns us to our senses confronted with experience, to their certainties and their contradictions.

Apparent evidence sometimes opposes, sometimes merges with truth. There is an inherent force of illusion which makes one take it for the truth and one can be in the illusion only by being persuaded to be in the truth.
