Landscape in mind
A PHOTOGRAPHIC SOUND INSTALLATION BY GUDD & PONS BRALEY
ARLES VOIES OFF FESTIVAL
At the invitation of Paris-Berlin Fotohaus, Gudd & Pons Braley conceived an immersive sound installation for Voies Off during the photofestival Les Rencontres d’Arles in July 2016. Based upon their long-term research in Fermont, this joint work engages on the one hand with the relationship between man and his milieu in the Subarctic city and questions on the other photography as a tool in explaining man to man. With an understanding of the latter as process and philosophy, the duo explores the medium beyond images. The visitor accesses a space within a space, surrounded by whiteness where overlapping voices form entry points into a mental photographic landscape.
