NOT ALONE!

Ghislain and Marie David de Lossy modus operandi transcends the nature photographic genre and traditional techniques. Displaying 40 photographic images taken over the course of several trips throughout Europe encompassing Finland, Iceland and Spain, their images offer a unique and unusual outlook on the animal world and nature. The contemplative viewer is required to scan the landscape for the animal, as it is not readily apparent, regardless of its actual size.

Despite the incredible precision and clarity, there is something surreal about the natural environment shown in these photos.   

This new approach to nature, both macro and microscopic, blurs the border between reality and fiction.  It is between these two worlds that we find the certain poetic quality of their artwork. The telephoto effect breathes the viewer right into the middle of the landscape, turning us into image hunters.  Lost in the vast wilderness we can, strangely enough, see the invisible. Rich colours add to the supernatural aspect of the setting and excite our imagination. Nature thus sublimaged seems to harbour unexpected guests : elves and fairies, ready to colonise the banks of the lead-coloured lake.

Sammode x Pierre Guariche

Sammode réédite une sélection de luminaires imaginés dans les années 1950 par l’un des créateurs–phares français : Pierre Guariche. S’il est un domaine dans lequel il excellait, c’est bien le luminaire. Le designer et architecte d’intérieur Pierre Guariche en est un des créateurs les plus féconds des années 1950. Il a conçu une gamme complète de luminaires ou, plus exactement, des « familles » — lampe de bureau, lampadaire, applique, suspension…—, qui comblent tous les besoins identifiés de chaque espace.

Ses luminaires offrent un grand confort d’utilisation — aucune source lumineuse n’est apparente — et une qualité de lumière idoine : éclairage général ou de circulation, d’ambiance ou ponctuel, doux ou puissant, voire diffusé par réflexion. Que Sammode choisisse aujourd’hui de rééditer certains de ces modèles est tout sauf un hasard. Depuis nombre d’années en effet, notre quête esthétique et technologique n’est pas sans évoquer celle prônée, jadis, par Guariche. Les affinités sont légion. Elles ont en particulier un nom : l’innovation. Fidèles au dessin originel et intégrant des technologies contemporaines, les modèles siglés Sammode — Pierre Guariche bénéficient, à l’instar de l’ensemble des luminaires Sammode, d’une qualité de réalisation exceptionnelle et d’une fabrication française.

 


 

Sammode reissues a selection of lighting designed in the 1950s by one of France’s leading designers: Pierre Guariche. If there is one area in which he excelled, it is the luminaire. The designer and interior designer Pierre Guariche is one of the most fertile creators of the 1950s. He has designed a complete range of luminaires or, more precisely, “families” – desk lamps, floor lamps, wall lamps, suspension lamps, etc. – that meet all the identified needs of each space.

Its luminaires offer great comfort of use – no light source is visible – and an appropriate quality of light: general or traffic, ambient or spot lighting, soft or powerful, even diffused by reflection. It is no coincidence that Sammode has chosen to reissue some of these models today. For many years now, our aesthetic and technological quest has been reminiscent of the one once advocated by Guariche. There are many affinities. In particular, they have a name: innovation. Faithful to the original design and incorporating contemporary technologies, the Sammode – Pierre Guariche models, like all Sammode luminaires, benefit from exceptional quality workmanship and French manufacture.

David Umemoto, the juncture of sculpture and architecture.

 

ARTISTIC APPROACH
The concrete works of David Umemoto stand as studies about volume. At the juncture of sculpture and architecture, these miniature pieces evoke temporary buildings or monuments standing on far-away lands. The images conveyed in the mind by these works are numerous. They refer to the archaic and the ephemeral, despite the solidity and the modernity of the medium. Appearing before our eyes are pre-Columbian rock dwellings, god statues from the Andes or Easter Island, steles deteriorated by rain, remnants of modern cities having survived a cataclysm, fragments of Babylonian cities, colonial settlements brought down to their foundations, cenotaphs abandoned in the jungle…
The production of David Umemoto’s works follows a process of slow and silent transformation. The creative process seeks to imitate the cycles of nature, which are cycles of erosion and re-creation. Lines shift, change and are in a state of perpetual mutation due to the influence of time and weather. The natural architectures of geological strata and crystals stand as models: They inspire the design of the moulds in which the concrete is cast. The ductile and infinitely adaptive nature of the material enables the production of objects that are both similar and different. The development of the works is thoughtful and iterative yet it makes room for improvisation, adaptation, and spontaneous inspiration. The shapes created by Umemoto line up in sequences of combinatorial variations. Each work offers a different face but these faces all belong to the same lineage. This kinship gives a strong unity to Umemoto’s production and allows for the exploration of the theme of transformation through time and tradition.
All of Umemoto’s pieces are handmade, in order to respect an economy of means. The pressure of modernity imposes on man the obligation to evolve constantly, which leads him into an endless race towards technological improvement. As an artist, Umemoto chooses to react by taking a step backwards. His manual activities result from a desire to simplify artistic practice. Aesthetics and formalism are thus combined with a commitment to plainness. Opting for a low-tech stance, the artist wants to resist the demands of progress. He creates structured and modular pieces but these never perfectly fit together, a result of their willingly imperfect mode of production.
Umemoto’s art is rooted in Americanness: His varied creations take their impetus from a desire to start settlements and to colonize wild lands, where nature is always on the verge of resuming its rights. When one sees Umemoto’s architecture sculptures, one thinks of the modernist complex of Brasilia by Niemeyer, lost in the Amazonian jungle, or of the complex of Chandigarh by Le Corbusier, in the heart of India. The walls rising towards nowhere, the curves running into ceilings, and the staircases leading into the void are reminiscent of the mysterious Prisons of Piranesi. One way or another, these are always works where imagination joins forces with a contemplative discipline.
