Les translations paysagistes de Cyrille Weiner

The way Cyrille Weiner experiments with the landscape has no precedent. Once the modern conventions of documentary and iconography are put aside, these “landscape moments” are forged by wandering and reconciliation.

Experimentation is central to Weiner’s approach. Formal experimentation primarily, because it is transgressive and adaptable, but also environmental in the way it seeks to reconcile nature and culture by endowing the former with a humanity that was believed to have disappeared. Here, the city and nature rally behind a common cause. “The margin of one is in some ways the margin of the other,” says Weiner. His photographs seem to have rediscovered the path of time in the no man’s land that Weiner has traversed in an act of “mental nomadism,” finding continuity in the attempts to place the photographic object into space, which the exhibition Twice, currently on display at the Galerie Laurent Muelle, aims to embody.

Weiner develops transgressive photographic processes, as in the installation he co-created with designer Grégory Lacoua. In the interest of letting the images move freely, they concocted a room that serves as both medium and expression. The transparency of three glass plates onto which the same image has been printed three times adds to the desinence of the image. The wooden base allows for the juxtaposition through a system of rails which keep the plates upright. The light projected from the back of the room illuminates the whole with astonishing fluorescence. The image is no longer a projection. It is its own projection.
