About the artist:
There is a big difference in the way individuals understand and define wild nature as opposed to cultural landscapes, and even geographical proximity or perceived similarities amongst cultural groups can do little to mitigate this. Yet, this gap appears even more amplified when the focus of specific research takes into consideration two lands, two peoples, two cultures that are extremely distant from each other also from a geographical point of view.
However, it is precisely when paradigm and paradox meet that certain reflections and certain images provoke extreme interest and intriguing charm. In this structural and binding work conducted across Iceland and Japan, Timothée reflects on the natural and urban landscapes that are idiosyncratic of these two countries. By diving into the relationship between architecture and landscape, the position of man and culture in rural nature or the urban space is also explored. There are many ways to tell a story, and so many more ways to lie about it.
Timothée’s approach is that of an internal observer, a co-worker. That is, a spectator-actor who does not limit himself to photographing and delivering the material by merely offering an aesthetic product of visual consumption. Instead, he unveils the dialogue and energies he has shared with the local community, offering us a glimpse of daily life of the cultural activities of both countries, active and intrinsic at once.
