“We all live in the world as we imagine it, as we create it.” Andrei Tarkovsky / Nostalghia.
Clément is a ‘Storysmith’. Ingredients for his narratives are both fact and fiction. It allows him to make up stories, to ‘start’ legends in any particular place he chooses.
He builds up stories…Show more combining either solid and verified historical events or mythological/biblical themes and outright pure invention. The outcome, a new story where the fact/fiction boundaries are blurred. His works investigate the legendary, creating narratives that are never being entirely believed by the viewer, but also never being resolutely doubted. They examine the suspended state of uncertainty.Show less
"These powerful images of perfectly detailed dioramas, bring this scene-setting technique into the contemporary area. Borrowing and reimagining scenes from history as well as his own imagination, Etienne creates new stories for our modern and all too grown up world."
