The upcoming personal exhibition of the Artist Photographer Bruno Palisson is located in Vendée, the works will be exhibited in two places within the Castle-museum of Noirmoutier; in the courtyard of the castle, as well as in the moat of the castle.
The exhibition will start on Saturday June 17th and end on Sunday September 17th 2023, and will present the artist’s ” Equanimity ” series.
Beyond the great question of the “Origin of life” and its mystery, the natural structure, matters, forms and hues of nature are the basis of Bruno Palisson‘s inspiration.
The subjects often impose themselves on the Photographer as evidence after a long time of coexistence, revealed by emotion, feelings, sensations… This is how his travel photographs are his own story and his occasionally dreamy thoughts. These are explorations of before, during and after. They are also doubts and hesitations, moments and paths that must be tried, attempted, since “as we reveal ourselves, we are never wrong”.
The works are a means to transport the Artist’s memory, and are in perpetual motion. Bruno Palisson tells a photographic story that he piles up and superimposes, in overlay or transparency as a life that unfolds, and piles up with intensity in this unspeakable mixture of past, present and future.
Bruno Palisson’s photographs are not recognisable landscapes or clearly defined objects, but moments and/or suggested thoughts, which he recommends to browser and share. The artist invites us to take a photographic journey through his imagination and his memories, as if suspended in time.
“What could be more banal around the age of 50 than trying to understand what is essential to our existence and to take a step back from the race we are running in our society and try to put this last stage of our existence into perspective. At the same time try to understand this distancing, this frightening but abstract crevice, hence the difficulty of apprehending it, which we continue to expand with nature, until the break, which perhaps will bring us to our loss? I therefore wished to get closer to the elements, Earth, Air, Water and Wood, which are familiar to me but I don’t look at them enough. I thus wished to get closer to the elements, the Earth, the Air, the Water and the Wood which are familiar to me and which however I do not look at enough. I observed, contemplated then meditated, I exposed myself, at least I coped without cheating, in order to become one with the moment and these elements. To be with them, to go to the essential, to the simplest, and to be as close as possible to our origins to perhaps be better reborn and perhaps for the first time, to live. It is this reconnection to our origins, this nature, ourselves, that I wanted to share with you.”
It was with a ‘Goldy’ Box camera, a gift from his father, that Bruno Palisson took his first photographs at the age of 10. Throughout his adolescence, he asserted himself through this medium, setting up a freelance practice at the age of 17.
Three years later he began a professional career as an architectural photographer, working for agencies and magazines. At the same time, he was studying for a degree in architecture and in 1994, with his colleague Jean-Luc Calligaro, he founded the architecture agency Atelier PO & PO in Paris.
In 1997 he represented the company Polaroïd in France for the brand’s 50th anniversary and in 1999, he co-directed an artistic campaign for the candy brand Cachous Lajaunie as part of a collective. Also in 1999, he took part in the Festival d’Art sans Fin in Bern, and this work was presented in the program Tracks on Arte. The artworks of Bruno Palisson, Photographer and Architect, are frequently shown and are part of Private Collections.
The work of the Artist is also selected by different Photography Festivals such as “Les Voies Off” of Les Rencontres Internationales d’Arles (2019), the “Festival les Focales du Pays d’Auge” of Honfleur (2020), the “Surrealist Festival” of Fréjus (2021), the “Présence(s) Photographie Festival” of Montélimar (2022); and are published in professional magazines, such as L’Œil de la Photographie, Openeye, Fisheye and Réponses Photo.
Since 2021, Bruno Palisson is represented by Art Trope Gallery and has shown his work at Arles Expositions during Les Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie d’Arles, at the ST-ART Contemporary Art Fair in Strasbourg and at the VOLTA Contemporary Art Fair in Basel, Switzerland.
