TIM PARCHIKOV | SUSPENSE | BOOK RELEASE
Exhibition at Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris
September 10th – November 11th 2014
An extract of the introductory essay by Ami Barak:
The suspense Tim Parchikov cultivates as a photographer is a form of contingency in the capturing of a place at a moment in which a story might suddenly have arisen there or where it might already have taken place, for at each stopping place on his wanderings around the world, Europe or Asia. In his own way the artist enquires about what might have happened or what will occur just after he moves on.
Jean Douchet has provided the closest definition, affirming that suspense is “the dilatation of a present caught between two conflicting possibilities of an imminent future”.
The artist has developed a conceptual approach out of his travel experiences, capturing the world with an uneasy and curious eye, rendering it at the same time hyper-real and yet pictorial. His world, which is at the same time also ours, is both banal and dramatic, familiar and strange. The framing the artist adopts for each shot is simultaneously savvy and quirky.
He views the world in slices and episodes, and his tonalities of color illuminate the everyday, showing us the world as we suspect it is, highlighting its strangeness and its beauty so often overlooked. (…)
