I see nothing but the sun, which makes a dust… Landscape in the Works of Ludovic Sauvage

88 -

In his Court traité sur le paysage, Alain Roger characterizes the double component—natural and artificial—of the landscape both as real intervention and as representation. Furthermore, with mechanical images and today’s digital images, the landscape is a thing as much of technique as of nature. By experimentally deconstructing and reconstructing views of countrysides, mountains, and deserts in his works, Ludovic Sauvage explores these ideas and offers a glimpse of the historicity of contemporary landscapes. But above all, he plays with clichés in order to reinvent them, notably by extrapolating the presence of a component at the intersection of landscape and image: light.
[Translated from the French by Louise Ashcroft]
