About the artwork

Like time capsules, Francis Meslet’s images of industrial buildings withstand the passage of time. In these deserted factories, on these abandoned sites with restricted access, no more than the rustling of the wind can be heard through a broken windowpane. These heavy silences invite the spectator to slip into these huge cathedrals of steel and let their imagination run wild. Beyond the dusty light and unpleasant odours, a melody strikes up in visitors’ minds, as they attempt to imagine the rhythm of the metallic sounds mixed with the voices and shouts of the people working here. From the series Silence and Oblivion, this image depicts an abandoned electric power station in Germany. The photographer enjoys penetrating within this sinuous maze to explore the industrial site down to its furthest nooks and crannies, which are sometimes pitch black. He is particularly attracted to a bright red armchair that contrasts with its environment and appears to invite him to settle in amid the machines that date from another era.

Ne prends que des photos, ne laisse rien que des traces de pas, ne tue que du temps, ne garde rien que des souvenirs."
