A dancer by profession, Fabrice Domenet is passionate about photography. The uniqueness of the work of this self-taught artist has gained international recognition since 2015. The artist proposes a wider sensory experience by revealing the space we share with the world.
The series Voir les yeux fermés (Seeing with your eyes closed) clouds our link to reality to transcend the conventional view of the world. This immersion in the landscape is like shamanism. Woven with dreams and reality, the photographs of living things trace the path of an inner journey. They embrace the multiple layers of consciousness to grasp the invisible dimension of the world and better capture its wealth. For Fabrice Domenet expresses the fragility of beings and moments to experience the world with empathy. He transforms the gaze by dissolving the boundaries between the intimate and the external.
Similarly, the series on aquatic plants entitled La peau du monde (The Skin of the World) draws the eye closer to the ﬂesh of reality. These meticulous photographs create real plant choreographies. Their deployment enables us to feel the weight of bodies and their physicality. The texture of the paper gives his images the feeling of skin. The choice of a low resolution blurs their contours so that we experience sensations close to synaesthesia. With this return to tangible presence, Fabrice Domenet's images end up on the edge between the physical and the metaphysical.
