FROM 23.05.2014 TILL 18.07.2014
WITH: Manon Harrois & Merhyl Levisse

“Mehryl Ferri Levisse is not a photographer, but photography plays an important role in his artistic work. This technique, which he calls “captationphotographique”, enables him to offer almost documentary traces of events in time, in the intimacy of his studio. A space he calls the theater of all his thoughts and fantasies, in which he constructs, on a scale of 1, contexts in which he stages the body. Closed, doorless and windowless are the images of his dreams, in which it is impossible to hold on to a material reality. His large-format photographic recordings create a direct frontal relationship between the body presented and the body of the viewer. By choosing to display these prints in the space of the Centre d’Art Contemporain /Passages in a horizontal arrangement, rather than opting for a conventional hanging, he proposes to create a stronger intimacy between the viewer and the viewed. You are cordially invited to move around, look at and apprehend the visual proposition, whose links and layout are not lost on the distracted eye.”
