Jean-Marc Tingaud: Intramural (2011-2022)

The inside of Paris … road views … pictures, indicators, clues, relics … transient.

The mirrors of our society, our lives, our customs, our particular person and collective destinies, our historical past, our cultures, our political and social realities …

Wild mail, this French exception, invades the streets. Paris, the one capital of the world the place train is so widespread, affords us a spectacle of a delightful show of libertarian transgression.

Coincidentally … a set that began greater than ten years in the past throughout my day by day travels, with out the fixed temptation to find and shock every little thing that claims every little thing, with a easy mobile phone in your pocket … the picture, then two, then three … and at last, the time an entire sequence of images that bear witness to realities, within the metropolis the place I dwell. Lastly, full a set of greater than 2 hundred parts, the place every picture incorporates traces of a private historical past, as within the sequence “Interiors”.

From massive format digicam to cell phone, instruments, follow, exploration areas, formal translation have modified. However, finally, it’s to proceed with the identical cussed investigation, some would say obsessive, figuring out full nicely that it’s going to finish …

Listed here are just a few questions which have by no means bothered me: the “imaginative and prescient”, the dimensions of the sector of exploration, and at last the emphasis on area, which is in the end pushed by a easy intention. : To go so far as potential to the “core of issues”, to attempt to transcend superficial illusions, to lastly embark on an intimate dialogue between the surface and the within … yours, mine, ours, theirs.

Talking extra particularly in area, Raymond Hains, a pal of Jacques Villéglé’s, additionally remembers the well-known “horse language” spoken, pull, pull !, we discover ourselves in a land of solidarity with the New Realists, with so many surreal r (é) osonances we favored to assume that we might make a silk bag from the ears of the sows …

Creative motivations and transmission methods are completely different: excision, bodily and definitive extraction of the medium for some, digital borrowing of a picture left fully in its context for others … with the identical widespread playground: Paris.
