ARTIST STATEMENT

English version

Franck Bohbot focuses his artistic research on public spaces and urban landscapes. Rooted in his fascination with cinematographic iconography, his thematics study the relationship between the individual and architecture.

While manipulating color with great precision, he highlights the soft subtleties of this relationship by playing with melancholic light and chromatics. The long exposures and natural light enable him to capture the essence and the breath of these deserted spaces carrying the ghostly traces of abandoned social landmarks. As such, Franck Bohbot immortalizes swimming pools, basketball courts, libraries, theaters, movie theaters, train stations, fairs… A plethora of structures through which he balances the power of architecture with the poetry of everyday spaces.

Each one of Bohbot’s series features these photographic intentions — through their enigmatic atmosphere, documentary-style approach, and timeless feel, we are transported to a dreamy, velvety, and nearly infinite visual paradise.


Version française

Franck Bohbot consacre sa recherche artistique aux espaces publics et aux paysages urbains. Fasciné par l’iconographie cinématographique, il centre sa création autour du rapport entre l'individu et l'architecture.

Travaillant la couleur avec une grande précision, il en exprime ses moindres subtilités à travers une lumière et des chromies mélancoliques. Les longues expositions et la lumière naturelle lui permettent de capter l’essence et le souffle de ces espaces désertés qui portent en eux les traces fantomatiques des « lieux de vie » abandonnés. Franck Bohbot immortalise ainsi piscines, terrains de basket, bibliothèques, théâtres, cinémas, gares, fêtes foraines… Autant d’édifices qui évoquent à la fois la force d’une architecture prestigieuse et la poésie des endroits ordinaires.

Chaque série contient cette même intention photographique : l’atmosphère énigmatique, l’approche documentaire et le caractère intemporel de chacune d’elles évoquent un espace onirique, velouté, presque insondable, comme tout droit sorti d’un songe. Read Less
