About the Artist

About the artwork

Laurent Dequick once again moves away from the traditional representation that we have of the contemporary city in order to present a highly poetic vision that borrows from the Cubist movement. On his escapades, he captures many monuments and locations that serve as incontestable witnesses of history and of the influence of the major global metropolises. The urban freneticism and hyperactivity that he likes to represent are expressed by a condensation of shooting angles, which draw the spectator's eye. Through this interplay of superpositions, Laurent Dequick notably evokes Marcel Duchamp's Nude Descending a Staircase in which the expressiveness of the lines reveals the movement within the painting. The photographer leads us into the North American city of Toronto to discover the strange Gooderham Building located in the neighbourhood of the old town, nicknamed ?Flatiron Building? owing to its original triangular structure that evokes the shape of a domestic iron.
