PHILIPPE DECRAUZAT

DELAY
Paris - 14.10.2017 > 25.11.2017

Bearing witness to an extreme rigour, 24 lines reference his previous exhibitions: 24 lines tinted in shades of grey. White becomes black, black turns grey and a gradation opens the way to contracted, or even retracted effects that induce a sort of slow motion pulsation. Decrauzat rarely wanders far from his fundamentals: images, sound and film. The notion of 24 images per second is an integral part of his means of expression, one through which he distils the essence of his relationship with time — fractions of time, 24 hours, a symbolic notion, the account of man’s experience of space and the world — constructing an allegorical story in connection with the temporality of his own language and free of emotional agitation.
