« Artist Renaud Auguste-Dormeuil (born 1968) is an artist of vigilance. Since the mid-1990s he has been working to reveal the invisible structures informing our relation to a reality that is always already mediatised. He tirelessly probes the production of the image, considered in its political space. Visibility/invisibility, luminosity/darkness, memory/forgetting, what we know/what we think we know, evoking without showing, saying without relating – these are some of the markers for grasping these works that give formal expression to the codes that organise the flux of images. »
