LCAXN exhibition by Nicolas Grospierre
at Kolektiv Cité Radieuse Gallery in Marseille
The LCAXN project presented at the Kolektiv Cité Radieuse Gallery in Marseille is a game that Nicolas Grospierre plays with the unrealized architecture of Le Corbusier. The artist takes drawings of Le Corbusier and gives them life through photomontage, creating ‘axonometric photography‘ – representation that is neither photographic nor drawing.
The presented images look like architectural projects but have the traces that history could have left on them had they actually been built. Nicolas Grospierre designed imaginary destinies for each of these non-existing buildings, inspired by the very real houses that he had photographed in Poland, Israel and Peru. Each project is thus given life in another place and time than those for which it was devised.
