PARIS BEAUBOURG - FACE À FACE

Over deze foto

Following his many collaborations with YellowKorner, Laurent Dequick once again moves away from traditional representation that we make of the contemporary city in order to present a highly poetic vision that borrows from the Cubist movement. On his escapades, the photographer captures many monuments and locations that serve as undeniable witnesses of history and of the influence of the major global metropolises. The urban frenzy that he likes to represent is expressed through a condensation of points of view. Through this interplay of superpositions, he notably evokes Marcel Duchamp's Nude Descending a Staircase in which the expressiveness of the lines reveals the movement within the painting. Taken from the piazza opposite the museum, the image Paris Beaubourg also pays tribute to modern architecture and to the creators of the Pompidou Centre, Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers. A key visual marker, the huge zigzagging diagonal enables visitors to be seen as they gradually ascend, while they simultaneously take in a panorama of Paris.

Laurent Dequick

This 40 year old photographer is an architect by profession. There are signs of this in his work as it is first of all a reflection on contemporary cities and more specifically aboutthe proliferation of modern urban space. Laurent Dequick’s purpose is to accurately convey an impression of frenzy which results from a density of population and activity in urban areas: « Along the streets, the lights, the noise, the traffic, the swarms of pedestrians, the blend of smells, are so fascinating that no single shot can entirely capture it. Do choices have to be made? I don’t think so: I don’t want to… »To translate this urban life congestion into an image, the photographer does not shy away from the juxtaposition, superposition or inlaying of shots. With the same intensity he overlaps photographs representing architectural complexes, main traffic routes and people. He condenses the images like the city condenses the sum of its inhabitants’ lives. Dequick’s style is reminiscent of cubism in its execution close to abstraction andin his representation of permanent movement.
