The European House of Photography starts the year with the celebration of the work of photographer Eric Rondepierre, through the exhibition titled, Images Seconds.
The exhibition presents all the series by Eric Rondepierre, like a retrospective giving a general vision of his work. It's a twenty five years of "times of view"
For several decades, the film industry has diversified its production, distribution and consumption. Since then, films are diluted in a multitude of simulacra, prostheses, virtual or real products.
As an artist, Eric Rondepierre has considered this historical situation to browse a world of fragments. Thus, at the turn of the 1980s and 1990s, the artist starts to make what he calls the "recovery of view": collecting images featured in films.
First he starts to isolate some images. "The" blank canvas "on which Eric Rondepierre began developing his work of visual artist, after he left the theater and stopped painting, was a black screen. Later he took images from the editing table, private archives, the digital computer.
In his work, he spots "what the eyes have never seen,", film images in connection with "parasitic events, devices, indistinguishable atoms internally gravitation, subtle shifts, evanescent accidents, microphones phenomena that no longer have anything to do with the movies. "
For 15 years he documented fiction (sampling without editing), then, in the 2000s, he began to fictionalize the document by creating a dialogue of film images with his own photos. The exhibition shows a 25-year journey in the territory of images.
