    About the artist

    Laurent Bompard likes to play. His images, based on photographs of urban and/or industrial land- scapes, are the result of severe cutting, re-arranging, overlaying, or, as he calls it, “rewriting the aesthetics”. By reassembling the components he totally changes not only the view, but also the energy and rhythm of the places shot, creating a fictional world – finding something new. To decipher the image, spectators are asked to take a closer look, but also to use their own imagination. Although there is a story behind each of the works, Bompard explains that the viewer “can easily go without”. He doesn’t even mind if people see something different than he does; as long as they accept the invitation to start opening their eyes and mind to discover something new as well. — Verena Weiss, Nevertheless Magazine
