CORPUS

Paris From 12 December to 21 December 2013

Presentation
The “Corpus” exhibition presents unique photographs of Vincent Descotils and Jean-François Lefranc celebrating the young woman, the eternal muse. These poetic images take us to a world of fairy tales, where the woman is still a child, threatened by becoming mature. Vincent Descotils flirts with the pictorial style and opens the gates to a dreamlike universe painted black, depicting the young woman dreaming, relaxing or in movement.

There are mysteries unveiling at dusk. Jean-François Lefranc cherishes the whiteness of the bodies and, from his contemporary perspective, revisits the Masters of classical Painting through sumptuous a scenography and a subtle color palette. They are masters of photography and each of them sublimates this tender, fragile and timeless beauty…


“The space of the image is as narrow as a sheet of paper. I perform there a minor ritual that takes the form of an inner journey. I trace an itinerary made of initiation rites, full of challenges and lucky charms, as in a children's game with no clear rules. In this game of mirrors with unclear and troubled limits, the world swings between poetry and reality and invites itself in our dreams, without too much noise or hustle.”

Vincent Descotils.
