France eMotion is a virtual tour of France and is the result of a long artistic tradition, inspiring artists and photographers all over the world who have described and captured these landscapes. This exhibition displays the work of four international photographers, Ishola Akpo from Benin, Edu Monteiro from Brazil, David Schalliol from the USA and Lourdes Segade from Spain who have travelled extensively, camera in hand, through these regions.
This travel-inspired exhibition consists of 35 diptyques, divided into 4 chapters: From one Arch to Another, O Saisons, O Châteaux, The Dream World of Museums and Metamorphasis. Each diptyque take us on a journey through time and space. The choice of colours, focus and angles come together as a beautiful juxtaposition of similarities and oppositions. The variety and diversity of these sites reveal a fascinating history of inexorable movement and invention right up to the futuristic architecture of today.
The virtual reality tour was created by Julie Stephen Chheng and Thomas Pons. To give a playful and poetic dimension to the whole experience, a virtual figure moves and metamorphoses through each of the photos. The work of photographs blends into graphic design, bringing together the real and the imaginary that leads to an interesting voyage through space and time.
