  • About the artwork

    Il est des lieux ou des situations dans lesquels, malgré l'absence d'entité humaine, une présence existe au-delà des objets. Cette présence "obscure", comme la rémanence d'un passé récent, donne aux choses une autre dimension. Comme si ces dernières avaient besoin d'une empreinte humaine pour exister. Ainsi, l'obscurité de la nuit ou la brume naissante du petit matin, sont des passeurs vers l'autre monde. Ils nous aident à mieux ressentir cette présence évanescente....
    Présence obscure s'intéressent donc aux milieux urbains nocturnes. Ces univers, sans présence humaine, ramènent inexorablement à l'Homme. Comme si l'environnement artificiel construit par lui, qui semble s'en éloigner, laisse pourtant son empreinte indéfectible.

    Ne peut-on pas voir à travers ces traces, une origine plus intime ?!

Xavier Blondeau

Born in: 1965 France

Xavier Blondeau

After a biochemistry PhD thesis at the Pasteur Institute, Xavier went to discover large deserted spaces of the planet -- he spent a year at the Dumont d’Urville station in Antarctica (1991), followed by a trip to New Zealand (1992) as well as some time spent in Australia from 1992 to 2007. Faced with the immensity of these landscapes where man seems to be so insignificant, he begins to wonder about the place of the individual in the environment, and especially about what defines humans.

Are humans shaped by their environment or are they, before all, essentially defined by their inner life? Xavier Blondeau addresses this issue in his work that he presents and structures through series of photographs on various themes: from the scene to the image, opal, bad weather on the road, prints, silhouettes, etc ...
