Looking both beyond and behind Guilluame Amar uses mirror in both natural and Industrial landscape
Reflecting on the very contrasting sides of both natural and industrial background, Guilaume Amat places a mirrored stand for his ‘Open Fields’ project to highlight the stark difference of the two different worlds.
A 4×5 inch camera has been used to capture the each image. Curator and writer Paul Wombell while comparing the images to Orpheus and Eurdice says’, with the use of the camera and a mirror Guillaume Amat has made photographic images that simultaneously look forward and backwards. They create a strange dreamlike landscape where buildings and figures float in the center of the picture and suggest that he has two sets of eyes, both at the front and back of his head. Orpheus would have been impressed.”
