NextLevel presents an exhibition of new works by FX Combes, ‘The Unknown Light’, the fourth
solo exhibition of the French artist with the gallery.
Light, as a revealer of matter, which reveals the non-visible, is at the center of the artist’s research for more than 20 years. In this new series of images, FX Combes explicitly refers to his earlier work in analogue where he diverted, manipulated the light emanating from the enlarger to create a photographic material, visible only by the experimented process.
As a variation in continuity, FX Combes has added to its palette, digital tools, by diverting them from their primary functions, seeking to explore both their strengths and their weaknesses; striving to glimpse a poetic material provided by the algorithm bypassed.
