Rêve d\'Orient

"The exhibition Rêve d'Orient brings together three series produced in the Far East between 2005 and 2008: Transsibérien, Lost in China and Japanese Whispers. I have constructed these three series as many cinematographic shots, seeking to transmit through my framing and my colorist approach a timeless and poetic vision of Asia.

In the summer of 2005, I took the Trans-Siberian Railway from Moscow to Beijing, crossing Mongolia. I then travelled through China. In the streets of Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai, I had the extreme sensation that there was like the permanence of a Chinese aesthetic that had crossed the ages and marked this country in full mutation.
In the spring of 2008, I went to Japan where my father, a marine officer, had lived. The furtive figures interviewed in the Shinjuku bars in Tokyo, the frail silhouettes slipping in the alleys of Gion in Kyoto strangely resembled the prints of my childhood. The places and landscapes were marked by a disturbing ghostly atmosphere. Japan, more than any other country, gave me the extreme feeling of blending into nature and floating on clouds.

Rêve d'Orient merges these three series which are an invitation to a chromatic, poetic and dreamlike journey."
