The furtive Museum, Paris, France
2006

Just back from the Seguin Island and the Museum of Contemporary art in Luxembourg, where he has been for some time, Pierre-Olivier Deschamps goes on a 4x5 inch camera trip in Paris. How can you avoid postcard pictures, corrupt traditional "images d'Epinal" scenes ? By unearthing each crack of the museumlike city, standing back to look at monuments to see them as State-made view-points. Here, the photographer conjures away to privilege one detail or, create minute distortions to instil chaos, or add a collage to create a diversion.
Where is he running to ? How did the Spirit of the Bastille emerge in this fashion ? Amidst the tensions dominating public areas, this delicate, almost close to fiction work praises light and broadens the scope of the imaginary.
