Pierrick Gaumé: The Sign of Expression
The important thing is that at a given moment one arrives at illusion.
Jacques Lacan, Ethics2
Pierrick Gaumé’s photo collections should be defined as expression rather than expressive. He does not want to give anyone a particular message but brings to expression an illusion or a sign of “nothingness” while depicting “everything.” He moves us towards a poetic existence. The reflections on various surfaces are not the outer world but only the creation of an illusion of that world. The reduction of space to a surface makes mass disappear while shadows, colors, shapes and light remain.
His work is the expression of an illusion. It is the expression of a world obsessed with the presentation of things. Therefore it is a pure expression of our world.
A collection of his work will be on display on November 7th at the Art in Context event.
