Agartha - Photométéores

Private: Edouard Wolton

Exhibition from september 3rd to october 24th 2015

[ vernissage le jeudi 3 septembre ]

For his first solo exhibition in a gallery, this young graduate (2010) from National School of Fine Arts of Paris presents a two parts scenography with works combining mathematics, geometry and the Natural. Through a study of minerals, luminous phenomena or geometrical theories, the artist establishes a link between different elements extracted from
nature in order to incorporate them in a coherent and rationalised thought of the representation.

Agartha, the title of the first exhibition, originates in the theory that the Earth is hollow and contains an ordered system with its own sun. This term refers to an unreachable space where the complete knowledge would lie. This artistic hypothesis is equally connected with scientific theories than poetic approaches or sci-fi novels, like Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne. This name, Agartha, of a legendary underground realm, allows to establish a link between landscape, rock, minerals and different mathematical theories in order to create a complete rationalisation of elements. The hollow moutain, the earth’s crust, the imagination and the symbols form an autonomous and total world.

The title of the second exhibition, Photométéores, refers to optical phenomena, resulting from a modification of the solar or the terrestrial light. The most frequent manifestations of it, like rainbows, shooting stars or twilights, impregnate our day-to-day lives.
Therefore, these processes, long fantasized, create an immaterial link between our atmosphere and the cosmos. Similar to luminous vortexes, his works associate sources of celestial and organic lights (coral, fireflies…) in order to recreate the best the order of the Natural.
