DupliréalitéECAL - École cantonale d'art de Lausanne
Dupliréalité aims to immerse us into reproductions of places of life that are essential to an individual’s existence. The cities explored include La Chaux-de-Fonds, Lausanne and Renens, which have a direct link with my own reality.
This research is based on a conceptual analysis of duplitecture, a recent architectural movement that replicates and relocates famous buildings. This analytical treatment takes place in a fixed medium, i.e. a book, a lasting object that has the power to cross the ages like a building and that comes to life through its materiality. The project reconstructs the process of a duplitect; thanks to the proximity of today’s media, everything is within reach and distance disappears.
