Dieter Appelt : Cinema Prisma
Maison Rouge, 10, boulevard de la Bastille, 75012, 01.40.01.08.81.
Until 22 january 2006.
Dieter Appelt is a conceptual
photographer totally centered on his own face. Working
autorportrait with an infinite variety of black and white, it belongs
to these conceptual artists for which photography is only one support
among others. This philosophical artist of Germany created, in
about thirty years, films, sculptures, drawings, and was, during a few
times, a baritone solo. This exhibition to the Maison Rouge
recalls a general panorama of the expression of Appelt. One sees
film projections specially worked again for the occasion.
Spectacular "the Forth-Bridge" reveals a table made up of 312
photographs of this old Scottish bridge, mixed with a film, on a music
of Xenakis. Artistic plurality gives birth to the emotion.
Behind these random visions, these series of voluntarily broken up
portraits, expresses an opinion hustled by contradictory perceptions on
the concepts of harmony, order, confusion, released chaos. An
artist of the question mark.
