About the Artist

About the Exhibition


Born in 1983 and a graduate of the École supérieure d'art et de design d'Orléans, Jérémie Lenoir has, over the last ten years, constructed an anthropology of our contemporary landscapes. His projects reveal the globalization of the forms, functions, and uses of our living spaces through the combination of aerial photography and pictorial influences drawn from painting. Transfiguring the representation of reality into abstract pictures, his photographs attempt to introduce a new realism into our contemporary territories. Lenoir is the author of Territoires occupés (LME, 2009), Transfigurations (Filigranes, 2011) and NORD (Light Motiv, 2016). He is the recipient of the Bourse de la Fondation Mécène et Loire and the eighteenth A.M.E. prize (Art et mécénat d'entreprise en Essonne).


The abstract-looking images of Jérémie Lenoir take us into an aesthetic imaginary that emanates from the industrial sites on the margins of our cities: quarries, construction sites, greenhouses, wastelands, and roofs are scrutinized from the air in order to highlight patterns in structures and installations that were built above all to be functional. Looking down on French and Québécois landscapes, it is possible to see the ways in which large-scale human activities trace forms of variable geometry on the surface of a territory. The sites appear devoid of human beings, without seeming deserted; these transformed landscapes have been conceived and constructed by mankind to make possible its diverse activities, and will continue to accumulate the scars which become, in some way, the portrait of an afflicted society.
