The artist

Photographer Aurélien Villette questions the meaning and patrimonial value of ancient abandoned buildings. While the latter represent an era in architectural history, they also bear witness to the specific history of a country, a region or a civilisation. The remains left in these sites are the chronological markers of an era. Ruins become both objects of contemplation and meditation.  ... See more See less

Architecture marks all of our lives, our lifestyle, beliefs and cultures, from our birth to our death and beyond. All of this variety leaves me awestruck, every day

About the artwork

While the photographer’s main subjects are inspired by buildings in ruins, these are not however always ruins left by their inhabitants. They hark back to the golden age of a bygone era and most symbolise a heritage that is doomed to disappear. Aurélien Villette has travelled the world since 2008 in search of “the spirit of place” in each of the structures that he photographs. Since then, he has travelled in around thirty countries, seeking out societies and stories that have fashioned his own vision of the world. What he highlights in his landscapes is this personal view of our civilisation and its changes through architectural constructions that have come and gone from one era to the next. His travels lead him to focus on countries threatened by political conflicts. Captured in Abkhazia, in northwest Georgia, this image paints the portrait of an abandoned panoramic restaurant. The Republic of Abkhazia is now one of the most disputed territories in the world and has consistently fought to affirm its identity since the fall of the Soviet Union.
