Cyril Porchet (b.1984, Switzerland) - Seduction
“For this work, I photographed the choir of baroque churches in Germany, Spain and Austria systematically in a frontal way. I selected these churches for their exuberance, as well as for their arrangement and for their saturation level, for their ornamentation composed by decorative, figurative and symbolic elements.
I photographed these cultural places in order to produce an effect of visual saturation. This profligacy of splendor contributes to stun the senses and at first glance provides an effect which tends toward abstraction. In a first step, the observer loses his references and after that he is able to pull out instinctively the concrete different elements composing the whole. The optical flatness produced by the camera looks like and references the “trompe l’oeil” technique often used in this type of architecture. The goal of this approach is to show in an analytical way the exuberance and the surfeit of baroque as a critical shortcut of the dramatic character of our current society. Doing so, I mean to have a critical look at the accumulation of spectacles in the present culture of our society.
My work is displayed in print formats of 120 cm over 160 cm under acrylic glass. This choice is meant to underline the exuberance of these places as well as of our contemporary society and also works as a small veiled message to the relics presented under glass in these churches.”
