FROM EAST TO WEST

On the occasion of his new exhibition at Jozsa gallery, David Leleu invites us in pictures’ random universe that he transforms by hand manipulation, technical or mechanical to reveal it, to reinvent it. If the light always is an integral part of the artist’s work, it takes a central role in this exhibition which the title refers to sun rotation.

The installation « The Invisible’s Stratagem » functions like an image generator where the light reveals as much as disrupts. The picture, initially fixed, morphs and is part of a temporal dimension.

For the first time, David Leleu touches to photography while remaining in the continuity of his draftsman work. He keeps this controlled balance where material and subject become confused. Pictures created by the artist go off and are distinct from their first reality. Disturb and disrupt the original allow him the creation of a mysterious and poetic pictures’ world where we don’t know exactly what we see or what they show us.
