Pour cette nouvelle exposition, Philippe Blanchard poursuit ses experiences recentes combinant jeux de lumiere controles par ordinateur et sculptures de papier serigraphie afin de creer une illusion de mouvement et dexplorer ce faisant lanimation comme medium dinstallation. Deux nouvelles uvres une installation sculpturale et un collage monte a meme le mur sont inspirees de structures architecturales reliees au feu ou a la lumiere : temples du feu, anciens autels pour offrandes brulees, ainsi que cinemas, edifices modernes consacres a la contemplation de la lumiere. Dans sa pratique, Blanchard considere le feu comme technologie visuelle primitive, precurseur poetique du cinema et de lanimation. Se servant de nouveaux materiaux papier serigraphie dechiquete et retroprojecteurs modifies, Blanchard cherche avec ce nouveau projet a developper et reinventer le lexique visuel qui lui est devenu familier : lumiere et encres rouges, bleues et vertes utilisees de maniere immersive afin dinterroger notre relation culturelle a limage en mouvement et a la perception du temps.

With this new exhibition, Philippe Blanchard continues his recent explorations using computer-controlled lighting and screen prints to generate animation and explore its potential as an installation medium. Two new works a room-sized sculptural installation and a wall-based collage both explore and are inspired by architectural structures that deal with light or fire as cultural phenomena : ancient altars for burnt offerings, temples that house fire, modern buildings devoted to the contemplation of pulsating light, such as cinemas. In much of his work, Blanchard considers fire as an early visual technology and uses it poetically as a stand-in for animation and moving images in general. Using new materials shredded paper and repurposed overhead projectors and approaches, with this project Blanchard expands the visual language he has been working with for the last few years : red, green and blue lights and inks used immersively to address the optical nature of the moving image and its relation to our perception of time.
