The gallery Baudoin lebon presents the exhibition Mes noires 1980-1985 by Patrick Bailly-Maître-Grand.
Considering his photographic device as a “magic wand”, and citing Etienne Jules Marey as a major influence, Patrick Bailly-Maître-Grand explores like a chemist in his laboratory the potential offered by the photographic medium.Through his use of sophisticated techniques such as the Daguerreotype, rayograms, strobophotography or other inventions of his own, the artist reveals an imaginary that is poetic, playful and conceptual. Although sophisticatedly elaborated, his refined works return to the very essence of photography: by linking both science and esthetic research, Patrick Bailly-Maître-Grand writes in his own unique way with light.
