For some, it corresponds to progress and for others it is loss and independence. “Quelque part sur la vingt” demonstrates the impact of economic development based on big corporations.
This conceptual and populist photographic exhibit makes us question the abandonment of our cultural heritage. The destruction of the “Madrid” restaurant on auto-route 20 is the object of this exhibit. Pictures taken from the artists’ point of view, the spectator is invited to reflect on these new demands by society.
For two years now, his work has been gravitating around “lomography”, back to the basics of “low-fi”. His work consists in unprompted pictures without any preconceived ideas of the outcome. He attempts to show visual and interesting variations.
For more than twenty years, through photography, Polaroid and painting, he developed a pictorial language. The subject of dreams is ever present within his work often personified into restful scenes with dynamic compositions.
The era of « hy(per)fection » in photography is engendered by digital. Clemz goes with complete opposites in presenting blurred, overexposed and poorly calculated images. These photographs, apparently “against-culture”, are the essence of his work. The necessary procedures of “lomography “as his main approach, proves to be the base of his creations. The unprocessed aspect of his images defines the foundation of the canvas. Most of his creations are the result of a “poetico-trash” instinct where an atmosphere of abandon or desolation often composes the background.
This exhibit is at its last stage and will not be shown again.
