Last Saturday, the vernisage of Fetart’s Circulation(s) festival took place @ the Parisian well hidden, well isolated Parc de Bagatelle. Not pouring but drizzling (which is even worst) for what promised to be THE evening of young European photography.
Quite a few disappointments, a “curious” mise-en-scène, but nice hot soup for such gray-day. We’re completely sure that if the Sun had been shining over our heads and the beautiful Galerie Côté Seine & Trianon, things would have been much much nicer.
Despite the evident holes the nice people @ Fetart did their best to bring as many people as they could to the remote location for the 2nd edition of their cross-European photograph exhibition. Loads of hits (that we’ll keep talking about) & misses but many emerging talents such as David de Beyter whose “Concrete Mirrors” series is inevitably linked (maybe inspired?) by Frédéric Chaubin’s Cosmic Communist Constructions.
David (French-born but Belgian-adopted) also timetravels to the always fascinating, always futuristic 60s architecture, focusing on all those places who had an spacial & scientific accreditation.
But beware! because most of those images are a mix of realities, even virtual ones which trick our perception by giving life to many architecture projects that actually never took place. Were we looking at the future ?
