ENTER THE VOID
The work of Emmanuel Monzon focuses primarily on the idea of urban sprawling and the expansion of its periphery. Monzon photographs banality as though it were a Romantic painting, trying only to be “stronger than this big nothing” in controlling the space by framing the subject. Monzon’s aesthetic of the banal obeys its own rules : a ban on living objects, a precise geometrical organization, and the revelation of a specific physical and mental landscape blurring the lines between city and suburb, between suburb and countryside, a process that results in an independent identity.
« This aesthetic of the void in my photographic work attempts to understand our current environment : can it be one of de-civilization? « E.Monzon
Join us for the opening of our very first exhibition in 2017 – E N T E R T H E V O I D – presenting 15 selected pieces of photography work of award-winning, Seattle based visual artist Emmanuel Monzon.
