Abattoir II. Photographie Originale de l'artiste
Originael black and white photography made and shot by Marc Trivier.Unsigned silver print, like most of Trivier's works. Unique proof drawn by the artist.Photographs of artists, madmen, trees or slaughterhouses, Marc Trivier approaches all these subjects with a look as precise as intense."In its cosmogony, every thing, every being, vegetable, animal or human, deserves the same respect. For all are confronted with the same law of brass: loneliness. (Luc Desbenoit)The beauty that emanates from his photos comes from this nudity. There is no editing or cropping. We find in his work the same square format that traps our eyes in photographs where the makeup of color is rejected for an incisive black and white. Since all artificiality has disappeared, we are not dealing with the staging of a subject but with a presence exacerbated by the radiant and singular light, witness of a moment of life and not of pose. It is this light, linked to and obsessed with Trivier's medium, that gives his works the aura that makes them so present:"Of thirty-five years of photographic practice, of obsessions, it is perhaps that which remains: a singular mode of recording of the burning of light, declined from one image to another, in a succession propositions that are similar and yet each is as singular as the fraction of time to which it refers. (Marc Trivier)Warhol, Foucault, Beckett, Dubuffet ... the greatest writers and artists have posed for Trivier. At the same time, the artist is also interested in the margins of society, which men do not want to see. He then photographs the lunatics and slaughterhouses he places next to celebrities. By the end of the 1980s his work was unanimously recognized and he received the prestigious Young Photographer Award from the International Center of Photography in 1988 as well as the Prix Photographie Ouverte (Charleroi). After the Palais de Tokyo in Paris and the Musée de l'Elysée in Lausanne, the Casino in Luxembourg, the European House of Photography in Paris devotes a major retrospective to him in 2011.The slaughterhouse series may seem remote from Trivier's other works. However, like the lunatics, slaughterhouses are part of these shameful images of a marginality that we do not want to see. It is a place rejected out of the city, far from the eyes, far from the men. There are no men in these photographs. Unlike the movie Franju, The Blood of Animals , in 1949, Trivier is not interested in the gesture of work in slaughterhouses. He captures them empty, peopled with corpses or blind animals before being led to death. The photographer is inspired by Bacon's painting, which he photographed in 1981, and his report to the body. We find all the pity of the English painter for meat and animals in the Trivier series. His pictures show us the beasts in martyrs like Marsyas or St Pierre. Trivier reveals the materiality of bodies, the bowels that black and white changes into marble, but also all that is human in animals: "We are meat, we are carcasses in power. If I go to the butcher, I always find it surprising not to be there, instead of the animal ... "(Bacon). Par l'auteur s.l. 1980 22x22cm sur papier Ilford 30x40cm une feuille
