About the artwork

Although inspired by crumbling buildings, the photographer's subjects are not always relics abandoned by their inhabitants. They take us back to a bygone golden age and mostly symbolize a heritage doomed to disappear. Aurélien Villette has traveled the world since 2008 looking for "the spirit" of each of the structures that he photographs. But what does that mean? He defines it as "A relational dynamic between material (sites, landscapes, buildings, objects) and intangible elements (memories, stories, rituals, festivals, know-how), the physical and the spiritual, that produce meaning." His travels have led him to sites devoid of any human presence that time has left by the wayside. The "Arche Végétale" is once again part of the photographer's almost obsessive, poetic and frantic search, in which he immortalizes the abandoned places he finds along his way. Here, nature is slowly taking over again, reclaiming spaces that seem to have been forgotten by civilization.

La végétation et les arbres qui étaient derrière moi étaient trop proches et il était difficile d’avoir assez de recul pour prendre la photo. Aujourd’hui l’espace est plus dégagé.
