Nathalia Tsala Gallery is pleased to present a two-venue exhibition of new and recent works by Paris-based artist Nicolas Dhervillers, which follows his exhibition ’Detachment’ at the Fondation Louis Moret in Switzerland.
Nicolas Dhervillers’ photographic works range from small still lives to monumental landscapes. In many of his images theatre, cinema, painting and photography coalesce. He uses the photographic process to take the viewer into a fictional space outside of time. His landscape photography is subjected to a digital process adapted from the cinematic “day for night” technique, lending an eerie look to pictures taken in broad daylight. Archival figures are then placed within the landscapes and washed with unnatural digital light.
This exhibition marks the artist’s third solo show with the gallery. Next to the Dhervillers’ recent photographic series ‘Detachment’, the new works on paper are integrated in the exhibition, where the artist is addressing the fundamental question of what it means to create pictures in an increasingly image-saturated world.
