PRIX DECOUVERTE Solo Show, Arles, 2nd July-23rd Sept 2012
Les Rencontres d'Arles 2012
"Nadège Meriau uses the camera to look into edible things. Here photography constructs imaginary and viscous landscapes. Her point of view is that of the worm, getting into matter. She uses a large format camera to get into the porosity of bread and vegetables. Yet, here, closeness produces distant landscapes that are purely photographic. Her approach reminds us of Gustave Flaubert’s comment on seeing: that the short sighted are the ones who see best because they put their nose into the core of things." Olivier Richon, nominator and head of photography at the Royal College of Art, London.
