WILLIAM FARGES DECONSTRUCTS THE HUMAN BODY

William-Farges-deconstructs-the-human-body-15

For White Line, photographer William Farges deconstructs the human body, creating fleshy mounds that transcend terrestrial shape in favor of elegant symmetry. In his alluring diptychs, isolated and unedited fragments of human form are mirrored and turned in on themselves, seeming to vanish into the thin but conspicuous blankness that separates the two images. This white line, the undeniable border that marks the end of all photographs, becomes as much the subject of Farges’ images as the photograph itself, devouring and bisecting the sensuous curves of the naked body. White Line evokes an anxiety and loneliness reminiscent of the work of Francis Bacon; as if governed by psychological impulse rather than the limits of the human figure, Farges’ nudes collapse in on themselves with claustrophobic determination, appearing desperately to reach into their own forms or outward to the edges of the oppressive, closed frame. Set against a backdrop of a similar peachy hue, the body is autonomous and no longer wedded to the mind or human reason. Like some unknowable, mysterious organism, it is absorbed and concerned only with itself, seeming to claw and grasp with luminous, outstretched limbs.

OBJECTS EXTRACTED FROM THE BOTTOM OF A RIVER

In the early 2000s, a new metro line was created in Amsterdam, along the banks of the Amstel River. The work required completely emptying the stream which allowed local archaeologists to look into a very interesting question: what could be found at the bottom of the river? Following this massive extraction of objects of all kinds, the Department of Archeology and the Amsterdam City Council opened a bank of images listing 19,000 of the 700,000 objects found.

THE DELIGHT THAT PRECEDES SUFFERING BY LE SCAPIGLIATE

The delight that precedes suffering by Le Scapigliate

Pains of love, by “Le Scapigliate” is an allegorical representation of the moment of delight that comes before the ineluctable misery.
They recite: “Every time I fell in love, it was late at night.
Night, of a reassuring darkness. In a suspense atmosphere, without a precise space-time location, which may be yesterday, today or tomorrow, where are you? Are these your hands?”
At night you fall in love because all the lights go out. In the darkness, you undress more willingly, off your coat, your clothes, your skin, without fear of stinging.
The defenses are lowered, prudence replaces a genuine unconsciousness. After all, if it’s so beautiful, what harm can it ever do? “.
