Michel Lamoller uses photography as a material to create multi-layered sculptures which meander between object and image. By alienating the original use of photography, Lamoller revisits representation mainly because in this manner he succeeds in revealing its capacity of expanding the boundaries of the image – going back to the basics of aesthetic experience.
With his works, Lamoller creates (often site-specific) interventions into the exhibition space that go hand in hand with the imaginary act that is anticipated from the viewer. The boundaries of the image are stretched into different directions. Lamoller experiments with the media, tries to find new possibilities but yet clearly refers to the photography’s tradition of documenting reality – only that his unique artistic process does not end up an image of reality but in objects that re-enter into the haptical world of things.
