The charred head of a matchstick. A rebellious lock of hair. Wild grass. A closed eyelid, tense from an intrigue. A fire. All nature is contained in the images of Thérèse Verrat and Vincent Toussaint. Pretty lasts. To understand what connects them we have to draw up an inventory of the curiously familiar forms populating their ageless repertoire, at least more ancient than today. Round angles, stain, slot, column, horizon. This suite, whose only logic is the repetition of one same sound, from the end of one unit to the beginning of another is not unlike a dorica castra. Not much noise in these photographs. Everything occurs as if they were turning their backs on the sensational, convinced
that “ yes, the ordinary can be image”.
With Forma, Thérèse Verrat and Vincent Toussaint engage in a dialogue. The group of photographs brought together under this title are the result of an inaugural experience, where the preoccupations of one and the other, the one with the other, become whole, come alive. Blow ups, details, chromatic effects... It is all about questioning reality, like exploring the notion of the image-document.
