About this work

Panoramas consists of a series of works initiated in 2010 using an experimental process. The works originate from the unexpected discovery of a set of images from a mysterious provenance, altered by water and washed up on a shore of the North Sea in 2008. This amazing discovery of photographic objects oscillating between representation and abstraction was a decisive starting point for the creation of the series.

The first step was to collect analog color photographs such as family photos, without establishing a hierarchy or special categorization.  The images were then dissolved by oxidation and their colored substance is removed and then deposited like paint on a wooden support coated with “stucco”.

The stucco technique and the ‘a fresco’ process refer to the Italian frescoes of the quattrocento and the painters of the time who used this process for the sake of conservation and longevity.

Like blocks of nebulous memories with cloudy and indefinite surfaces, these works of art are meditative and poetic explorations of memory.

Raphael Lecoquierre

Raphaël Lecoquierre, multidisciplinary artist born in Saint-Cloud in 1988 (FR), living and working in Brussels (BE), graduated in 2010 from ENSAPC and in 2014 from ENSAV. His work focuses on abstract issues, reductionism, poetry and colors through paintings, sound, installations or video. He is interested in the persuasiveness of images, the desires they can generate and the relationship they maintain with memory and time. Raphaël Lecoquierre evokes the evocative and poetic potential of sober and refined forms through a stream of random and alienating visual images that overwhelm us. In 2011 he founded the Artist-Run-Space Abilene with Nancy Moreno, Régis Jocteur, Louise Boghossian and Andrea Montano with whom he set up an exhibition cycle of young artists belonging to the international contemporary art scene such as Gijs Milius, Carlotta Bailly-Borg, Nicolas Bourthoumieux, laura Porter, Louis Clais or Sébastien Bonin. Since 2010 he is also part of the audiovisual project Ligovskoye that he started with Nicolas Azonov. This multidisciplinary project combines image and sound in various publications, performances and multimedia installations. The duo mainly plays live in Paris in the Grand Palais (FR), in the Almine Rech gallery (FR) and in the Gaîté Lyrique (FR). They present their multimedia installation project « Enuma » at Greylight Projects in 2017 in Schaerbeek (BE) and then « Jalan » at the Atlas brewery in 2019 in Anderlecht (BE). The work of Raphaël Lecoquierre has been the subject of various group and personal exhibitions in Brussels, London and Paris: « Meditation on management » Vulpes Vulpes (London, EN, 2013); « Nabla » Poppositions off fair (Brussels, BE, 2014); « Elements » La Rotonde (Brussels, BE, 2017); « Intermediate State » (solo), 6 Elzevir (Paris, FR, 2018), « Extraction » (solo) Passage Biennial (Bergerac, FR, 2018).
