Facades, Markus Brunetti at The Rencontres d’Arles 2015
The FACADES by Markus Brunetti evoke enthusiasmor a sense of estrangement. For the viewer they raise questions that are often posed today, in the ‘age of technical manipulation’. Questions that Brunetti responds to only with his works. The pictures are digitally captured and meticulously worked out in a time‐consuming process. The final step requires printing them on large‐format paper so that their presence and characteristics can fully unfold. They challenge the viewer to take the time to carefully observe them, and not to succumb to the habit of rapid consumption so common to our media‐driven, visually addicted society. The presentation at the rencontres d’Arles is the first international exhibition of the FACADES series. The project itself is nowhere near complete—Brunetti’s journey to the sacred buildings of europe and other continents continues.
