  • About the artwork

    "Un jour, un agriculteur lui a dit "C'est bien de vous intéresser à notre travail".

    Elles sont posées là, empilées près des fermes, disposées le long des chemins, au fond des prés, à la lisière des bois, éparpillées, enchevêtrées, désordonnées, insolemment libres, mais étrangement intégrées dans le paysage.

    Ces balles d’ensilage, extraites du terroir même et façonnées par l’agriculteur, apparaissent comme de gros fruits surnaturels , mais elles peuvent être vues aussi comme d’incontestables faits plastiques, comme d’authentiques œuvres d’art, car elles possèdent naturellement la puissance de certaines œuvres contemporaines, architecturales ou sculpturales. Ces apparitions éphémères autant qu’irréelles, ont une vraie présence, une véritable qualité esthétique et une étonnante dimension poétique.

    Elles semblent porteuses d’une vérité aussi intemporelle qu’énigmatique. C’est tout cela, en même temps que ce mystérieux processus de ré - humanisation des actes d’industrialisation agricole, qui fascine le photographe promeneur plasticien et poète, Bernard Langenstein. Et c’est ainsi qu’il nous donne à voir ces somptueuses et envoûtantes images."

    - Pierre Souchaud

Bernard Langenstein

Born in: 1952 France
Biography
"Influenced very early by the universe of the image, following in the footsteps of my grandfather and my father, i am photographer.
I like to watch, wander, explore. The photography is for me a personal way and obsessive to show the universe individuals, everyday objects, industrialists who are sometimes intrusive but who have a real usefulness.
One day, I discovered these sculptures planted in the near, these facilities such as totem poles, walls, sometimes chaotic or perfectly aligned, revealing the character of the farmer who shaped, and without the knowledge created ephemeral works worthy of a contemporary artist.
One day a peasant said to me: it is good that you take interest in our work."

- Bernard Langenstein

Bernard Langenstein searches agrarian installations that he wants to capture in graphic images. We can see in his works obscure bodies between sky and earth. The light and shadow give a unique character to these “supernatural fruits”. The photographs display essentially shades of black, white and green. The general mood can be described as “ a poetic delirium of agrarian industrialization”.
