About the artwork

Laurent Dequick, a professional architect, often showcases buildings and architectural heritage in his photos. Here, he goes further by integrating blueprints of each building, these line drawings that represent all of the proportions of the various dots or lines of a figure. “This is the crux of architecture: between the idea and the construction,” he explains. “It all starts with a line, and from the line form must emerge.” It is the search for the perfect harmony of forms, materials, symbols, and uses.”

Anecdote

Originally the Théâtre des Célestins was a convent that was transformed into a theatre in 1792. Since its construction in the fifteenth century, the edifice has been struck by misfortune many times, including five fires.
