What water and photography have in common is that they have a fluidity that accompanies the movement of our gaze on the world and our uncertainties. From phase to phase (solid, liquid, evanescent), they host our reflections and projections. For Laurence Aëgerter, Anaïs Boudot and Douglas Mandry, it was therefore obvious to play with the photographic medium to talk about the theme of water, a fundamental element of life and a powerful echo of the fragile future of our environment. Laurence Aëgerter transforms simple bathing snapshots from the depths of the Web into large phosphorescent wall tapestries, creating memorials of the pleasure of the moment. Anaïs Boudot captures on glass the swell, the foam and the eroded stones, as a reminder of the inconstancy of the sea. Using a lithographic process, Douglas Mandry transfers photographs of snowy mountains from the 1930s-40s onto "glacier blankets" used to slow down the melting of the ice: these become the shroud of the stigmas of our dreams caught up by their excesses. To experience this meeting of nature and technology in the anthropocene era, go at the end of the diving board, for the deep end!
