Ce que tu es

In the photographic series Ce que tu es (As you are), 2010-2016, a simple camp torch is the tool for an almost speleological research into the gloom of seemingly remote natural scenes, which are however often just round the corner, like small disused industrial areas remodelled by the spontaneous action of nature, or a wood that has appropriated the things that mankind has abandoned.

With long exposures this essential light restores places suspended between the external world and interiority, where wide areas of obscurity leave space for the uncertain as well as for imagination.

Ce que tu es was presented at the exhibition LumièreMatière, Académie royale des Beaux Arts, Brussels, 2016.
