The only clear memory I have from Cairo is underlining this paragraph from Cocteau while the plane was taking off.

« Qu’il se lève, qu’il parle, qu’il agisse, qu’il soit sociable, qu’il vive en apparence, gestes, démarche peau, regards, parole n’en reflètent pas moins une vie soumise à d’autres loi de pâleur et de pesanteur. Le voyage inverse aura lieu à ses risques et périls. Cependant, revenu sur sa planète, il garde une nostalgie. »

Coming back from Cairo is published in Flofferz.

“Skeuomorphic” is a body of work created by Jacques-Aurélien Brun, Maxime Guyon and Jean-Vincent Simonet, and set designed with Marceau Avogadro and Anaïs Benoit Dignac.

An observational practice of the physical and contextual form of the photography medium has took place in the past year. Whether they record abstract visuals, re-appropriate commercial aesthetic discourse or playing with a whole delightful digitized chaos, the three artists here ended their process with the question of the persistently shifting modes of the photography media today. Their natural collaboration came in the investigation of physicality in photography.

The apprehension of the image as an object dissipate the initial narratives from the three distinct bodies of work, but also attempts to expand the visual experiment on the current extreme ubiquity context that undergoes this medium.

When the young French photographer Jean-Vincent Simonet came across the book Les Chants de Maldoror (The Songs of Maldoror), he felt hugely attracted to the dark, theatrical and transgressive character. The cutting-edge book praising youth revolt, blasphemy and the victory of dream over reality was published in 1869 by Comte de Lautréamont. Simonet decided to revive the literary enigma by transforming the classic novel into a contemporary book and exhibition Maldoror.
Simonet’s photos don’t literally follow the text of The Songs of Maldoror but are related to the universe of Lautremont.

Chant Cinquième is about intimacy.
