Camille Spiller – Smooth Space

Diploma project with RVB Books/Matthieu Charon & Rémi Faucheux

My work focuses on the construction of the city and addresses my own critical position within the extensive social fabric produced by the city. Inspired by Deleuze and Guattari’s “smooth space” — i.e., open, free-flowing, multidimensional — this work analyses and connects urbanisation processes in various West European cities. Fragments of prefabricated buildings, office blocks and streets aggregate chaotically. By further warping their aspect through the photographic lens their chaos is accentuated thus generating an atmosphere of doubt. Collage in post-production pushes distortion to the point of creating a conundrum between optical illusion and constructed reality.

Starting from the premise that the book constitutes both an alternative practice to the exhibition and an alternative exhibition practice - alternative exhibition practices insofar as the book and the printed word are essentially modes of visibility of art; alternative practices to the exhibition because this means of visibility is very different from what is usually called an exhibition - we consider the book to be the medium that is perfectly suited to soon-to-be-graduated photographers.
