About the artwork

Artwork sold in perfect condition

"Wall Street is no more than an ashen steppe, the black dust has blown everything away. On the reinforced concrete, knees torn, he yells enraged." In this composition, a wall in New York and a wall in Los Angeles, which tell the story of 9/11 through metaphor. Two walls photographed in two different places, over a period of 10 years. This is the singularity of the 40 diptychs of the Wall Street series. Whether it's two streets, two districts, two cities or two countries, these assemblages reveal astonishing similarities between motifs and writings from distant horizons, and reveal a whole poetry made up of intertwined lives. . Wall Street is the walls that bind us. For Sylvie Barco, the strips of wall could be added to each other to make a film of tags and stories to unfold.

Born in 1973, Sylvie Barco is an urban art photographer.

Released Major in 1996 from Icart Photo, she invests the street, her ground of inspiration. For 25 years, she has set in motion her creative process to explore the imprint of urban cultures.

It was in Béthune, rue Faidherbe, that in 1994 his first real encounter with "the wall", the matrix of the work to be born, took place. As she is about to cross a street, she stops in front of a red brick wall, struck by a cry from the heart "Sophie je" written in red letters. A flash. Is it a cry of love or hate? This ambivalence of the perceived image, of the detail that instantly disturbs perception, upsets the gaze, is therefore deeply at the heart of his quest, as well as of his work as an artist.

Over the walls, for 25 years she has tirelessly traveled the metropolises of the world with her intuition as her only guide, and the facades of cities as her only motif.

In search of emotions, she randomly tracks streets, graphic and chromatic finds nestled in the stone It is always the irruption of an unexpected detail that stops him at the foot of the wall and opens the doors to the imagination.

Composing an imposing photographic fresco divided into 3 distinct series, his images invite the viewer to invent his own story. Abstract and scripted in the LOMOSCOPE series, in the form of a collection of details tracked down in the street with the CHAOS series, while WALL STREET combines the universal language of street art.

In 2019 she tackles installations with the WALL STREET PROJECT by signing collages of her photographs of walls, from which she extracts the poetic nature and the narrative essence, of cities, sites and festivals (Strokar in Brussels, Cavalaire , Mister Freeze in Montauban…)

In 2021, during the group exhibition Merci (with JR, Maxime Drouet, Georges Rousse…) she presents a first work "Take me away" from the upcoming INSTAGRAFF series. By adding graphic patterns in the form of a stencil to her urban photography, she rewrites a fiction, between perception and reality.

In August 2022, for the Art Of Skate exhibition, Sylvie Barco exhibits her unpublished skate photographs, looking at these young concrete people and the whole ambient atmosphere that ties them together. For her, the plate translates a whole expressive language, an interior monologue of a youth in search of freedom.
