The CRP/ presents a preview of works by five of the fifteen artists awarded the national photographic commission Flux, une société en mouvement, launched in 2018 by Cnap (Centre national des arts plastiques) in partnership with the Ministry of Culture. The CRP/ supported this national commission project in conjunction with Diaphane, photography centre in Hauts-de-France. It will be presented in its entirety in the autumn of 2020 at Photaumnales.
Echoing the various meanings of the word “flow” (spanning fusion, stream, information transmission, ensemble movement and fluctuation), the selected artists used this commission to develop unique artistic research exploring the materiality of the image, concretely translating the subject of the flows that cross landscapes. At the CRP/, the works of the four individual artists (Nicolas Floc’h, Éric Guglielmi, Ilanit Illouz and Florence Paradeis) and one artist duo (Mathieu Farcy & Perrine Le Querrec) show the environmental and social concerns that economic flows have lastingly churned up at the global level.
Their works invite visitors to roam wooded, underground, underwater and mental landscapes, and to become aware of how flows influence our everyday lives.
