Gregoire Pujade-Lauraine, A Perpetual Season
A Perpetual Season offers glimpses into a network of silent spaces. Recurring concrete shapes and perplexed human beings punctuate the sequence of images with a faintly elegiac tone. This is fertile ground for a series of unsettling encounters, which act as cryptic symptoms of an ominous presence – a reversed staircase, an unreachable doorway, people frozen in precarious gestures, disturbed conversations. This 'perpetual season' alludes to a self-contained pictorial space, in which a naturalistic photographic approach is a guise for a construction that ultimately belies its own familiarity.
