Hyères 2012 – Grand Prix : Jessica Eaton

“The series Cubes for Albers and LeWitt explores the possibilities of manipulating time, space, perception and, in particular, the additive system of colour. The images from this series are constructed onto single sheets of 4×5 film. The subject in reality is monochromatic. Th...

Hyères 2012 – Prix LVMH : Florian van Roekel

“My work revolves about the way we experience everyday life and how that affects the way we deal with each other. My images are documents, taken from a candid reality. But what they really seem to document is the way our perception of the world around has been coloured by years...

Hyères 2012 – Olga Cafiero

“At the heart of a Renaissance cabinet of curiosities is the collector himself, who collects in an encyclopaedic manner, and according to his own criteria, heterogeneous objects that he later organises according to his tastes, interests and passions. This is a subjective proces...

Hyères 2012 – Richard Kolker

“My project explores escapism and how we engage with the immersive virtual reality of the online video game. The images are constructed using a combination of traditional photography and the 3D modelling techniques of the video game industry. But instead of portraying the escap...

Hyères 2012 – Hanna Putz

“I enjoy it when pictures feel as if one has left the people undisturbed. My work is concerned with a consciously created “casualness” that strips away the spectacular, the noisy, and superlatives. When I started working with photography, I mainly photographed models, since...

Hyères 2012 – Akira Somekawa

“ ‘Houescape’ is a portmanteau word combining ‘house’ and ‘escape’. I got this idea for the project when I was cutting up film one day for another project. I often go to an old part of town or to the countryside and walk around, as it reminds me of how people lived ...

“I am presenting here two different series. One is about an ancient forest I visited earlier this year in the southern island of Japan to witness with my bare eyes a living tree that may be 7,000 years old. During my quest I was struck by the beauty and power of the forest. The...

Hyères 2012 – Manuel Vazquez

“In a society full of prying eyes like ours, everyone can become both spectator and actor in the quotidian spectacle. With CCTV cameras scattered in every public space our dwelling leaves traces behind, stored as visual codes. Choreographed crowds transit the nameless global ci...

Hyères 2013 –Emile Barret

Triple Body is a study of the body for the curious, a proposal for multiple realities surrounding the topic of the human body (or the art to not choose). The starting point is the fact that the body is the foundation of our perception of the world. It's the prism through which we...

Hyères 2013 –Dominic Hawgood

Speaking in tongues is a biblical phenomenon in which a person utters incomprehensible speech-like syllables, considered by some to be part of a sacred language. During an artist residency in Texas Hawgood searched for people who had this ability, through an advert in a local ne...

Hyères 2013 –Grace Kim

My work contemplates memory, time and consciousness, and themes of existence—what it means to be human and how we construct our personal truths and realities. Working with digital photography and video, I contextualize still and time-based elements into symbolic conditions that...

Hyères 2013 –John Mann

This new project considers the intense light seen by the very first arctic explorers. By using the photographic still life to visualize the sense of foreign light, the black and white images provide abstractions of the light and minimalist landscape foreign to human eyes. Images ...

Hyères 2013 –Eva Stenram

Drape uses vintage pin-up photographs as its source material. I sought out images, mainly from the 1960s, in which women posed in (semi) domestic sets in front of curtains or drapes. Manipulating these, I extended the curtains to partially obscure the women, re-enforcing the for...
