« Abstract or ancient forms? Reality or imagination? We are not sure what these photos represent, as they transport us into Denis Darzacq's unique universe. »

For his third solo show at Galerie RX, Denis Darzacq has decided to group several of his series (Contreformes, Absences, Recompositions, Photos mobiles) with photographs from more recent projects, such as Act 2 and Hyper. These are images where light, movement, materials and volumes dialogue through what appear to be abstract photographs. In reality, these are "concrete photographs of abstract situations" as Denis Darzacq so aptly puts it. For let us not forget that he is first and foremost a photojournalist by training! But recently, the photographer has detached himself from the reality of the field to be alone in his studio and create forms that are independent of their environment. The image no longer tells a story, it no longer informs the viewer. Instead, it represents a material that exists independently of everything around it. To create these forms that look like prehistoric minerals and abyssal shells, Denis Darzacq dives into his own archives to cut out images, assemble them, reform them and capture an image. These photographs are then arranged in such a way as to form a single image, which is in turn photographed, and so on... An endless mise en abyme of different realities, of which only photography is the witness! It is a global questioning of the place of a body in the frame, both literally and figuratively. By delving into his archives, Denis Darzacq offers us photographs with an abstract character that is almost archaeological, both in the creative process and in the forms given. To be seen simultaneously with Samuel Rousseau's solo show, which also transports us into a parallel world. Is the RX gallery a space out of time?
