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 petrochemical site in Italy. An industrial Guggenheim or deserted Tower of Babel? As we enter the bowels of the building and find ourselves confronted by its architecture, our surprise joins that of the photographer and we cannot help but wonder about its design. Why was such a massive tower built without interior floors and with only a narrow footbridge appended to the internal walls?
