Quentin Derouet, "Untitled", 2014

In partnership with the Jacques Le Caron vocational school in Arras (62) and artist Quentin Derouet, in the context of the EROA project (Espace Rencontre avec l’Oeuvre d’Art) developed with the CRP/ and the FRAC.

Quentin Derouet is developing a print photography practice, giving special attention to light in order to bring out “in between” atmospheres, tinged with mystery.
No Man’s Land was born of a teacher’s discovery of Quentin’s photographic work, exhibited at the CRP/ in April 2015. This inspired the desire to offer to students in professional courses—many of whom are unfamiliar with artistic approaches—the chance to discover pre-digital photography, while exploring questions relevant to their training: structure, heritage, restauration, and more generally beauty… The photographic medium, through students’ perspective on their environment, will make it possible to examine these notions and get a sense of what constitutes an artistic approach. The use of a photographic chamber—a tool that requires patience and precision—will also give them a chance to get a different view of the relationship with time, and to fully understand the very principle of the photographic act, “writing with light”.

This project will lead to an exhibition of the students’ work in the school at the end of the academic year.
