Other Things Visible
Studio Luc Derycke
Situated as it is at the very turn of the century, and questioning from the outset the inflation and desubstantialisation involved in the hegemony of images, Michel Mazzoni’s photographic practice is an image factory or rather an image-thinking factory. An image that outflanks it and decompartmentalizes it in multifarious ways, from its installation in situ to its editorial deployment. An image qua cultural artifact in its capacity to link us to the world in a shared sense of the perpetual present and of circular time. An image qua material reality pushed to the limits, based on the phenomenology of its perception, hence on its intrinsic quality of enigma.
This book is published on the occasion of the exhibition 'Other Things Visible' by Michel Mazzoni at Botanique, Brussels in the spring of 2019.
