About the artwork

Like time capsules, testifying to a parallel world and perfect for enabling the mind to wander and ponder, Francis Meslet's melancholic images brave the passage of time, making way for silence after the memories left behind by human inhabitation. In these deserted places, no more than the rustling of the wind can be head through a broken window or the sound of water dripping from a destroyed ceiling. These silences nonetheless invite the spectator to slip into these well-guarded and mysterious places captured by the photographer and attempt to bring to life that which has been forgotten. Welcome on board was taken in the spring of 2013 in a stairwell of an Italian administrative building abandoned by its staff for more than 40 years. Hidden behind the lens, the artist wants to immerse the observer entirely within the sites represented, as though they were there.
