Pierre Casanova


July 13th -- July 24th, 2005


The first exhibition of Pierre Casanova in Japan,


a Parisian photographer haunted by the night's world.

-Wandering in the silent darkness of numb cities, outside or inside deserted buildings, I let myself invaded by the unseen personality of the metropolitan universe. No Human will cross my path. Only rootless monsters of stone, iron, wood or glass, coming to life in the night. Who are these creatures? Are they still our Creations? I have no answer. I just keep witnessing the changes of Matter.

真夜中。無感覚な静まりかえった暗闇。誰もいないビルの内や外をさまよいながら、僕は 宇宙の中に確かに存在する、都市の、目に見えない個性、得体の知れないパワーに押しつぶされてしまう。根をもたない物質、石ころや鉄や木やガラスの怪だけが真夜中に動きだす。 これらは一体何なんだろう。僕にはわからない。-僕は、ただその変化をずっと見続けている。-P.カザノヴァ (文責:ギャラリーメゾンダール)
