From January 26th to April the 1st 2013, the city of Dinard presents its new exhibition “Arches”. The photographer Jean-François Rauzier proposes an “archeo-modernist” odyssey. About forty pieces are presented such as a monumental sculpture, photographies, videos or fake documents specially recreated for this event.
“Arches” is a narration which central theme are extracts from Genesis. Curated by Ashok Adiceam, the exhibition is a walk through brand new pictures based on the story of Noah’s Ark. Visitors are invited to travel in a mysterious and fascinating universe.
Jean-François Rauzier’s pictures recreate architectures and atmospheres by assembling various elements. As a surrealistic dream, each picture presents a new world between fiction and reality offering many interpretations but always creating a rupture with our today’s world.
This is definitely an experience that is not to be missed. But for those of you who cannot attend, make sure you visit the ‘Project Arches’ website for a spectacularly detailed virtual tour of the exhibition and endless full-screen zoom-ins through a collection of Jean-François Rauzier’s past projects. Seen as a whole, his spectacular oeuvre invites us to embark on an fanciful journey through parallel universes of replicated reality where the imaginary co-exists with the real.
