Produced in close contact with the ballet company at the Paris Opera. The powerful energy of the dancer is fantastically projected.
At the gallery THE CLUB (Ginza GINZA SIX6F, Chuo-ku) in Ginza Tsutaya Bookstore, a solo exhibition by photographer Pierre-Elie de Pibrac, who lives in Paris, will be held. 18 representative series of artists who have exhibited at CHANEL NEXUS HALL are exhibited. It will be unveiled for the first time in a Japanese gallery. The session is from October 16th (Sat) to November 13th (Sat).
THE CLUB is pleased to announce the exhibition "Catharsis" from the trilogy "In Situ" by Paris-based artist Pierre-Elie de Pibrac.
"In Situ" was produced by Pierre-Elie at the Paris Opera in close contact with the ballet company during the 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 ballet performances. By carefully blending in with the dancers, Pierre-Elie lived together with the opera house on the backstage, observing various behaviors and completing "In Situ". The work shot through this process is a powerful yet fantastic reflection of the energy of the dancers.
““ Catharsis ”reflects a very private and abstract approach to dance. With a novel vision and unique technique, I tried to capture how the energy that the dancer exerts on the stage spreads into the surrounding space. This work attempts to replace the strong emotions, urges, discoveries and illusions that ballet performances have given me with photographic ideas. It resembles a childhood memory somewhere. The powerful image created in this way created various stories through the abstraction that naturally appeared. If you stand in front of the photo, the energy and emotions that come from it will gradually spill over. And how to perceive it is left to each person's heart. ”
