Aude Moreau : La Nuit Politique / The Political Nightfall (Bilingual) (Hardcover) (Louise Dery & Kevin
About this item
The photographic, film and sound works of Aude Moreau cast a hitherto unexplored light on the North American city, with its modernist grid, soaring towers, blinding corporate logos, and with its solids that box us in and voids that let us out. Embedding film in architecture, politics in economics, transparency in opacity, and the private in the public, Moreau deflects and refashions the iconography of stereotypical urban images to project the future as a gathering political darkness. Prominently featured is Moreau’s latest film, the powerfully apocalyptic THE END in the Background of Hollywood, shot by helicopter over Los Angeles.Aude Moreau’s practice encompasses her dual training in scenography and the visual arts. With concepts painstakingly developed over several years to produce ambitious installations, films and photographs, she focuses a critical gaze upon society as spectacle, the privatization of public space, and the domination of the state by market forces. Gordon Matta-Clark, Ed Ruscha, and Mies Van Der Rohe are key influences on how Aude Moreau observes and interprets the city.
