Journée blanche

image de l'oeuvre Journée blanche de  Alain Guiraudie

De Alain Guiraudie installation 2018

  • 2018 - Exhibition Panorama 20 au Le Fresnoy - Studio national des arts contemporains, Tourcoing de Tourcoing (FR)

As I write these lines, I have yet to take a single photograph for this project. I have just done the casting and, therefore, chosen the models who will appear in the pictures. They are very simple people with no great singularity (with one or two exceptions). I also have a fairly precise idea of the places in which I will photograph them. Indeed, the project came from these places around Le Fresnoy, and from the photograph of a face seen in an actor’s file.

If I follow the plan I set myself (which is the kind of thing I tend to do), I will use these models to recreate scenes from everyday life. They will thus pose in little allegories of daily living. I will leave room for the mood of the moment, the beauty of the banal. It could be the photographic film of the day of one man, something like a photonovel (without the narrative) and the photographic tableaux of Jeff Wall.
