OBORO presents eighteen large-format photographs by Matthieu Brouillard that bring together the first two series in a trilogy begun in 2008, offering a meditation on our embodiment in the world and our relationship to representation in this bewildered era, sometimes called that of "the end of grand narratives."
The first of these photographic series, The Resurrection, presents itself as a dialogue with Matthias Grünewald's resurrection panel from the Issenheim altarpiece (1512-1516). The second series, Children of Broken Symmetry, portrays difficult births in the hostile environment of an enigmatic structure on the edge of disintegration.
This exhibition will coincide with the publication of Darkness Implacable by Sagamie (Alma). This monograph will contain a selection of Brouillard's images since 2003, along with an essay by the writer James D. Campbell and an in-depth interview between the American photographer Russell Joslin and Matthieu Brouillard.
