french artist olivier ratsi interrogates the world’s perception and experience of reality through his ‘anarchitecture’ artworks. based on research dating back to 2005, this concept is realized in various different formats – photography, multimedia installation, audiovisual performance and mapping performance. the fragmented architecture is a photographic work that is part of a larger opus titled the WYSI*not*WYG (what you see is not what you get) project, where image samples are draw from our objective reality and are reshaped to denote the evolution of the urban landscape. this work attempts to involve its audience through a mental exercise of visual reconstruction – asking them to process information they do know with information they don’t.
