Jean-Marc Tingaud: Intramural (2011-2022)
Internal Paris … views from the road … footage, indicators, tracks, relics … short-term.
Displays on our society, our lives, our customs, our particular person and collective destinies, our historical past, our cultures, political and social realities …
The wild publish, this very French exception, is invading the streets. Paris, the one capital metropolis on this planet the place the train is so widespread, provides us the spectacle of an satisfying demonstration of libertarian transgression.
Briefly … a fundraiser began greater than ten years in the past throughout the every day journeys, with no different need or intention than the everlasting temptation to find and be stunned by these little nothing that claims all of it, with a easy cell phone in your pocket … One image, then two, then three … and at last a complete collection of pictures that testify to the realities of the occasions, within the metropolis the place I stay.

After we speak extra particularly about going into house, and likewise evoke this well-known “horse language” that Raymond Hains, pal of Jacques Villéglé, talks about, sure, sure !, we’re in nations of consensus with the brand new realists, ir (é) asonans additionally with the surrealists who appreciated a lot to make us consider that we will make a silk bag out of a sow’s ear …
Creative motifs and switch methods differ: excision, bodily and definitive extraction of the medium for some, digital borrowing of a picture left intact in its context for the opposite … with the identical frequent playground: Paris.
