Corinne Vionnet – Away / Festival Images / 2016

Du 10 septembre au 2 octobre 2016

Tous les jours de 11h00 à 19h00

Une exposition du Festival Images Vevey 2016.


Corinne Vionnet travaille à partir d’images publicitaires trouvées sur les sites internet d’agences de voyages. Elle isole et agrandit un détail pris dans ces paysages paradisiaques de bords de mer. Ces images sont ensuite piquées de micro-perforations venant consumer et consommer le bleu du décor. Sur ces fonds bleutés, elle fait apparaître une myriade de points vides rappelant autant l’effet d’une trame d’imprimerie que le procédé des cartes perforées qui servaient autrefois à programmer, mémoriser et stocker les informations numériques. Cette série pointe le décalage entre la réalité du tourisme de masse et les vacances de rêve que s’emploient à nous vendre les tour-opérateurs, tout en questionnant le pouvoir de l’image publicitaire sur nos souvenirs et notre mémoire collective.
