About the artwork

A trained architect, Laurent Dequick went to Venice for the first time on a field trip in 1991. He returned several times, never tiring of the refinement of the architecture, landscapes and Venetian artistic and musical culture. It was with Vivaldi in mind that the photographer immersed himself in the city in order to steep himself in the luminous atmosphere and its unrivalled art of living.Above all, the artist adopted the paradox of the archipelago that finds itself both nursed by the constant flows of water and frozen in time by its rich heritage. The photographs that he produced there represent emblematic sites such as Saint Mark?s Square, the island of San Giorgio Maggiore or the canals and their gondolas dotted all over the city. In his opinion, these public spaces differ from those encountered in other Western cities, owing to their lagoonal character and perpetual movement.

The artist

Christine Ellger was born in Germany in 1948. Her interest in photography was heightened with the advent of digital photography and the infinite possibilities it offers in terms of processing. Since she retired in 2010, Christine Ellger has been continually photographing the world she has been discovering on her travels. She collects photographs and subsequently retouches them, conferring a magical aspect to them stemming directly from her imagination. The originality of her work is thus based on its fantastical and hyperrealist rendering. At first glance, the spectator cannot make out the photographic technique used. Hyperrealist style is the identical reproduction of a photograph as a painting. This painting is often so realistic that the spectator comes to question the very nature of the work. This well and truly applies to Christine Ellger’s bewitching world.  ... See more See less

My images do not have a sociocritical message, they are not documentation, I want to show through my works the romantic side of life.

CLAUDE DEGOUTTE

“The wall belongs to the ‘retards’, ‘inept’, ‘rebels’, ‘simpletons’, to all those with a big heart. It is the blackboard of the school of life,” says French-Hungarian artist Brassaï in his famous back Graffiti. A veritable ode to urban art, Brassaï’s reflection was to mark the a...
