It all started with the disappearance of the cat. We searched for it for a long time, in vain, then resigned, we ended up promoting the theory of running away. Until that night. A couple of friends came to dinner at home with their child, who started playing innocently near the living room curtain. Suddenly, we are frozen by a heart-rending scream. I just have time to grab my camera (I wasn’t going to risk my life for a child I didn’t like any more than that). And the child disappeared, devoured by the curtain. Needless to say, I imagine, we have been at odds with this couple of friends ever since. The curtain finally spat out the pants a few weeks later, a little chewed up. As a precaution, we are now avoiding this room.

I strongly recommend that you specifically lighten the picture: the black of the baryta will bring out the luminance of the subject wonderfully.

Filmmaker ( "My dear parents",...), scriptwriter, actor ( a few films and hundreds of fictions and readings for France Culture), Martin AMIC started photography very early. These different artistic practices are mutually enriching. In 2009, he met Willy Ronis for a long time, who carefully analysed and analysed his work, pointing out with kindness the elements on which he needed to improve. He did this conscientiously for the next eight years.

Today, his photographic work has matured. The image, inseparable from the text that accompanies it, becomes an extraordinary fragment of history that the spectator’s imagination enriches.

For square formats on a very limited edition black or white background: Since time immemorial, whatever the medium, he has been interested in abolishing the frame. In the work presented here, light or its absence accompanies the gaze towards the colours or the subject by dissolving the frame and the useless, while opening the imagination to the occulted parts. The black and white flat areas create a distance from the subject, like a Brechtian distance, which gives a different view of the photographic object. Martin AMIC proposes a reflection on the blurring of the boundaries between photography, painting and drawing.

"Fiat Lux! And there was light. It is from this primordial darkness that Martin Amic makes us discover all that we do not see of the objects or architectures that we thought we knew. But more than an earthly light through his photos, it is indeed a penetrating light of sensitive humanity that radiates to us! What a beautiful discovery these pictures are!" Nathalie Kaufmann-Khelifa Historian of Art, author.
