‘journées du patrimoine, domaine de saint-cloud’, 2012 by clément briend

 

 

french artist clément briend uses the medium of projection art as a photographic exploration of nightfall, with his most recent iteration – enititled ‘journées du patrimoine, domaine de saint-cloud’ – depicting images of expressive gargoyles hidden amongst the trees of paris. the nocturnal imagery capitalizes on the natural texture of the leaves to create striking light illustrations – bringing them to life. the large-scale pieces are produced through multiple photo quality large format projectors, from which he removed the continuous light source with a flash and modified the optical part of the projector to fully optimize the flow of light.

 

briend says of the work:

 

‘I always wanted to photograph the world without it being too faithful to what it is. I always imagined devices that can transform and intervene with the light in things that I photograph. the focus became photographs that include projections and hence the idea of doing shows with projected images.’
