The modern figure is not the child or the lunatic, still less the artist, but the cosmic artisan: a homemade atomic bomb. To be an artisan and no longer an artist, creator or founder, is the only way to become cosmic, to leave the milieus and the earth behind.
— Gilles Deleuze
This exhibition is the result of a co-investigation by five artists of the image’s ontology, in both its metaphysical and digital virtuality.
Curated by Bastien Rousseau
The project started by speculating about a non-mimetic photography which for us ultimately became a false concept and transformed into a Principle of Mimetic Difference; where a photograph is considered as at once mimetic and non-mimetic, existing simultaneously within and beyond both.
The invited artists have engaged with research speculating on the possible next stage of photography on the premise of a photography whose 'picture-state' is exploded through time and space.
