About the artwork

In his series “Food Waste”, produced in 2010, Gildas Paré highlights all of the ambiguity of food waste by capturing the image of destroyed foodstuffs using a photographic procedure with a strong advertising connotation. This combination of beauty and destruction contributes to a genuine sense of confusion and thus encourages us to think about our own mode of consumption. With around 100 kg of food wasted per person per year in developed countries, this series therefore questions an important environmental, financial and ethical scandal. Through his photographic acts, Gildas Paré plays with appearances and, in this case, with disintegrating food, which he seeks to magnify through a lighting and aesthetic with strong advertising connotations.

The artist

Born in 1977 in Nantes on the banks of the Loire, Gildas Paré was not yet at high school when he discovered his passion for photography thanks to black and white prints. He subsequently undertook professional experiences in several studios. It was in 2005 that he truly dedicated himself to photography and became an independent, working for many communication and advertising agencies. He started his first personal projects in 2011, such as “Food Waste” in which he questions the modes of consumption of our societies and cultures. Gildas Paré won the Grand Prix de la Photographie de l'Alimentation 2011 awarded by the Ministry of Food and Agriculture, and a highly commended award at the Prix International des Nouvelles Écritures in 2015. In the same year, he exhibited at the Transizioni Festival in Bologna as well as at the Zoom Photo Festival in Saguenay, Canada. He regularly works with Libération, The New York Times and Vice magazine.  ... See more See less

“The wall belongs to the ‘retards’, ‘inept’, ‘rebels’, ‘simpletons’, to all those with a big heart. It is the blackboard of the school of life,” says French-Hungarian artist Brassaï in his famous back Graffiti. A veritable ode to urban art, Brassaï’s reflection was to mark the a...
