Thomas Jorion: „What happens if I put bread with jam on the back of a cat and drop the cat upside down?!”

Le travail de Thomas Jorion (né en 1976, installé à Paris) s’élabore dans le champ spécifique des bâtiments en ruine ou délaissés, des lieux désormais déchus tant de leur usage que de leur fonction. Son geste photographique explore les rapports avec l’environnement construit en privilégiant des espaces atypiques qu’il nous incite à observer en induisant une réflexion sur la matérialité et la temporalité.
