78 rue de Turenne “Back to the Stars” Photographs by Cédric Delsaux
with a light box « Destroyer » manufactured by Société Lumière
With his work Dark Lens, Cedric Delsaux has been labeled the “Star Wars photographer.” The French man Photoshopped the saga’s characters into real-world situations, creating a body of work that went viral a few years ago. This approach is indicative of Delsaux’s take on photography. “For a long time, we all believed that photographers were here to show reality, to reveal what had happened, but we’ve since realized that it wasn’t that simple,” he says. “Photography only reconstructs reality through a particularly convincing illusion.”
“I’ll use it to say something about us.”
“Over the years, many artists have interpreted Star Wars in ways that extend well beyond anything we saw in the films. One of the most unique and intriguing interpretations that I have seen is in the work of Cedric Delsaux, who has cleverly integrated Star Wars characters and vehicles into stark urban, industrial – but unmistakably earthbound – environments. As novel and disruptive as his images are, they are also completely plausible.”

from 17 Mars to 26 August 2018
Hélène Delprat is an insatiable devourer and collector of the images. She proposes a world of the visual thoughts, a little theatre of the methamorphosis, a burgeoning curiosity cabinet, an extravagant encyclopedia of the living, being guided by the associations of ideas, words, images as well as by the current or archives events. The world of Hélène Delprat is one of great wealth. The immense paintings overlook draws, traced designs, collages, films, photographies. Including a dozen of light boxes manufactured by Société Lumière.
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 white, even 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.

photography by Luciano Rigolini, and light box by Société Lumière
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.
