Severine Blanchet & Antoine Grospiron-Jaccoux I “Flying away”, Alliance Francaise I antidote I 7.12.15 – 17.12.15 I Dubai

Alliance Francaise and Antidote present  “Flying away” a photography exhibition by French photographers Antoine Grospiron-Jaccoux and Severine Blanchet,  showing for the first time in the Middle-East.

The works selected explore the poetic view of traveling in an old-style manner, without a defined plan and with a sense of discovery and respect for new places found.

The photographs play a visual game of abstraction of pure subjects: sky, desert, and water. The work allows an image to bend over the essential, morph the figurative into the abstract, and reveals a newfound beauty of the landscape or a city like Cuba for Séverine Blanchet.

Both these artists take that traditional approach, using vintage Leica camera for Antoine Grospiron-Jaccoux, and classic techniques as entirely part of their photography process to create a poetic narrative for the viewer while revealing the subtle shifts of the nature of their subject.

 

Alliance Francaise, Oud Metha, from December 7st to 17th 2015.

Sunday – Wednesday 9:00 AM – 8:00 PM

Thursday & Saturday 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
