SOPHIE CALLE at Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature, Paris

The Hunting and Nature Museum in Paris invite Sophie Calle, French writer, photographer, installation and conceptual artist.

Sophie Calle ased us for a light box “where you do not see anything”. She superposed a  text on the image of her father and, at the reading, the image is not visible. It can be seen after 35 seconds, for a few seconds, before power off, leaving us with a image of his father which continues to exist in our memory. The text, stamped on the acrylic-glass panel remains whiteeven when the backlight is turned on. It is like a diorama, that Sophie Calle presente us, a tribute to the image, to the writing and to his father.

from 10 OCTOBER 2017 to 11 FEBRUARY 2018   62, rue des Archives 75003 Paris, FRANCE

Light box Tombeaux des Califes

Société Lumière made a light box for the French Architects Ameller&Dubois from a very ancient photography Tombeaux des Califes, le Caire, 1858, by François Joseph Edouard de Campigneules (Waxed paper negative 23.6 x 32.6 cm). It’is a light box powered through batteries. For this ancient and fragile image, we assembled both “Tungsten” white and “Daylight” white. We used the led ribbons SOFTLIGHTS BICOLOR ULTRA for enhanced visual emotion.

Xavier Lucchesi X rays Pablo Picasso works

Xavier Lucchesi nous a fait honneur et confiance pour réaliser 5 oeuvres  à tirage unique.  Pour la première fois, nous avons réalisé des caissons lumineux ou l’image est directement mis sous verre par le procédé dit diasec. Le verre, extra claire et trempé, apporte à l’image une transparence troublante.

Xavier Lucchesi trusted us to make a first time lightbox series using special glass, and not the pmma (plexiglas) as usual. The result is more organic, more transparent, and more present. The scenography, putting Xavier work in front of Picasso original paintings,  brings Picasso into the present , yet the images  Xavier awakened  was already there.
