About the artwork

Like wonderful time capsules testifying to a parallel world, perfect for enabling the mind to wander and ponder, Francis Meslet’s melancholic images brave the passage of time, after the memories left their by humanity. In these deserted places, no more than the rustling of the wind can be heard through a broken windowpane. These silences invite the spectator to slip into these well-guarded and mysterious places and attempt to revive forgotten lives. If there is one privilege that Francis Meslet particularly appreciates, it’s that of being able to roam the corridors of a castle, a palace, a manor, or a villa that his fallen into disuse. During his incognito visits, he imagines himself as a lord or viscount and takes the greatest pleasure in pondering what the life of the occupants would have been, finding the best angles for his photographs, and leaving again discreetly from whence he came. The Last Princess was taken at an old palace in Portugal. Hidden behind the lens, the artist wants to place the observer in a situation of total immersion, as though they were really there, where the last princess to occupy the site once stood.

“I am particular sensitive to architecture. The talent and engineering deployed by people in service to a cause fascinates me. Pushing back the limits of balance and aesthetics, taming light and space.”
