Aujourd’hui, je vous invite à découvrir le travail incroyable de Guy Laramée.

Guy Laramée « sculpte » de vieux ouvrages pour leur donner la forme de paysages anciens, irréels ou de cités perdues, héritières de civilisations à jamais disparues.

Mais le centre de son travail, depuis plus de 25 ans, est l’Erosion et particulièrement l’érosion de la culture face au progrès.

Cultures arise, become obsolete, and are replaced by new ones. With the vanishing of cultures, some people are displaced and destroyed. We are currently told that the paper book is bound to die. The library, as a place, is finished.

A l’heure de la dématérialisation, en particulier celle du livre, c’est une belle reflection poétique et engagée que nous livre l’artiste.

So I carve landscapes out of books and I paint Romantic landscapes. Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains. They erode a bit more and they become hills. Then they flatten and become fields where apparently nothing is happening. Piles of obsolete encyclopedias return to that which does not need to say anything, that which simply IS. Fogs and clouds erase everything we know, everything we think we are.
