Talk projection with Christopher de Béthune 

(French)

Christopher de Béthune is a Belgian photographer whose images and landscapes in black and white are witnesses of sadness, comfort and nostalgia.  

Veiled in a dark romanticism, his work has been described at once impulsive and other times prudent but always with notes of melancholia and solitude, inviting the viewer to travel and abandon.

Japanese cinema has had a big influence on the artist's work.

Presentation of the book "Tant de poussière, et moi si sourd" by Antonio Jiménez Saiz (BE)

"Tant de poussière, et moi si sourd" is an epic matured in the daily silence where words give themselves to meditate. If the disease is an exile from oneself, being bipolar is a shipwreck where every day raises mourning on the beauty of the world. This is not a medical book, the drugs are already enough, it is a book where melancholy is expressed in the body in molasses, frail, of all shades and colors.

 

After the publications of Elite Controllers (2016) and No nos aprenden a morir (2018) Antonio Jiménez Saiz, self-taught Belgian photographer will come to present his third and last chapter "So much dust, and me so deaf", a series all in depth in his inner world.

Jihuay is a story with its fair share of unanswered questions. A sort of initiatory journey as many have been able to take, with the idea of ​​giving meaning to things, finding solutions to problems.
