Marc Fichou: Freeze the Present
ROBERT BERMAN GALLERY is pleased to present the work of French artist Marc Fichou.
In an exploration of the time-space continuum, Fichou creates in space literal compositions of what has happened in time. Freeze the Present is a marked shift from previous work illustrating ideas as a painter to materializing them in a mixture of technology and art craft.
Form and process become the variables in experiments designed to witness the effects of time compression. As in Origami Cube – a photograph of a cube printed on the very kraft paper used to construct it. And in 2D cube, 3D shape, 4D direction – geometric blueprints layered on five transparent canvases to provide an instant x-ray of how the piece was conceived.
Fichou further explains, “Imagine a book written on transparent paper. The words on each page are partly composed from the pages before. Usually time only allows you to read page after page, whereas in this case, you can read the book all at once.”
And in a moving, evolutionary iteration of space-time dynamics – Video Feedback Cube (a video feedback loop of a camera pointing at its playback monitor) surveys the visual, circulatory transportation of information and the resulting fractal patterns that emerge.
