    Série "Chambre mentale"

    Qu'en est-il de la série "La chambre mentale" de Marc Le Mené? Convaincu de l'existence d'images mentales – images enfouies au plus profond de nous, que nous recherchons inconsciemment et que nous pouvons parfois re-visualiser - Marc Le Mené a décidé, à la suite de la lecture du livre "Voyage autour de ma chambre" de Xavier De Maistre, de s'exprimer dans une forme que nous pourrions qualifier d’extrémiste.

    Il a, pour cela, réalisé une maquette dans la laquelle il fait revivre, par installation de divers objets ou photographies, un certain nombre de situations, des personnes, d'images, de plans cinématographiques, j'allais dire d’histoires ou d'images mythiques, voire même personnelles, qui l'ont profondément marqué.

    Avec cette série, encore d’actualité à ce jour bien qu’entreprise depuis des années, Marc Le Mené reconstitue donc de façon poétique, surréaliste, via le médium photographique une exploration de sa mémoire propre en liaison avec les événements de son temps. Le coté extrême évoqué n’est toutefois pas dans le choix des événements mais plutôt dans la forme de cette mise en scène dans son propre espace matériel (espace mental?) qui induit une forme classique d'unité de lieu et de temps.

Marc Le Mené

Born in: 1957


Marc Le Mené is a French photographer, born in 1957.

Marc Le Mené eventually joined the famous Villa Medicis. He was only 22 when he settled down in Paris, he began to paint and photograph regularly, all this was financed by a job he obtained at a famous advertising photo studio.

Marc Le Mené has his own unique style, he designs objects before taking pictures of them. He places his objects inside a "mental room": closed on five sides and open on one, so that he can place his camera.

Marc uses a 3D process which is within everyone's reach, He develops his work in Selenium, giving them an old look with some red and green reflections.

He doesn't want to be considered only as a photographer, therefore, he can't be assimilated with a trend or a date. Marc Le Mené's artistic world is filled with visual references, derived from photography or cinema, all these works are unmistakably inspired by surrealism and cubism.

Mysterious and amazing, Marc's works can be assimilated with alchemy. In fact that artist is open about the traditional aspect of his work.
