Disassembling the Urban Landscape by Zacharie Gaudrillot-Roy
Zacharie Gaudrillot-Roy’s Facades disembowel the apartments, offices, and other assorted buildings that we weave through day after day. More often than not, we’re not privy to what these places actually shelter – instead, we have to rely on imagination to picture just what’s going on beyond the brick and mortar walls that separate indoors from out. Using digital erasure techniques to manipulate urban landscapes, Zacharie Gaudrillot-Roy removes interiors and inhabitants out of his images entirely, transforming buildings to superficial structures incapable of housing anything at all. Reminiscent to something one might find on the set of a Hollywood movie, the world of lonely rigid walls standing solemnly is eerie, even a bit unsettling.
