The artist

Born in 1968 in Paris, Chris Morin-Eitner studied architecture before embarking on his career as a photographer and short filmmaker. In 2015, his series Il était une fois demain [Once Upon A Time Tomorrow] was presented at the Fondation EDF for the Climats artificiels [Artificial Climates] exhibition. Making the cover of the April 2016 issue of Beaux-Arts Magazine, he was also invited by UNESCO to exhibit his images during the COP 21. Inspired by a journey to the ruins of Angkor, Chris Morin-Eitner shaped this particular aesthetic, in direct response to the contemporary issue of global warming. Through his series, he imagines a potential future with some of the emblematic structures of our time: “Conscious of the transitory and short-lived character of all human endeavours, I asked myself how all of the ‘super glass’ buildings of our age that vie for airspace might evolve in the future, as Angkor has.” The photographer has participated in numerous events throughout the world such as “Voilah!” in Singapore in 2017 and the French Festival in Kuala Lumpur in 2018.  ...

About the artwork

The simultaneous discovery of the peaceful ruins of the City of Angkor in Cambodia and the cutting-edge novelty of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates gave rise to an aesthetic shock for Chris Morin-Eitner, sparking the creation of the series Il était une fois demain. In this series, which BeijingForbiddenCityFlowerPower belongs to, the world imagined by the artist is that of a return to nature. The noise, excess, and activity that once characterised our capitals have given way to a lush landscape. The starting point of this photograph was the representation of an iconic building (The Forbidden City) in a huge global megalopolis (Beijing) that finds itself surrounded by nature, which has reclaimed its stake. Besides its graphic quality, we understand the photographer’s intention: no civilisation is eternal. To create this “newfound Garden of Eden, full of life, colours, forms, and poetry”, Chris Morin-Eitner photographs his subject from all angles, then recomposes it with other elements, as a digital painter would do.
