Eric Bourret:  Timescape


Artist’s Reception:

Monday, June 15

6:00 – 9:00 pm


Since the start of the 1990s Eric Bourret has been traveling the world on foot.  His expeditions take him over every terrain and altitude.  The journeys can last for anything from a week to several months.  More than images, Bourret’s frames record, as he puts it, the “experiences of walking [and] experiences of the visible” (Esther Woerdehoff Press Release)


To achieve this encapsulating of experience he always applies the same protocol: Bourret superimposes a number of views of each scene so that the geological and human time scales merge. Due to the technique, a part of the image disintegrates on the surface of the film before taking concrete form. The final frame represents a summation of different memories into a “temporal layering” that is vibrant, oscillatory, almost animated.
