Plastic Life










Photos : Vincent Bousserez //// Plastic Life


Everything is the wrong way round in Vincent Bousserez's photographs. People have been replaced by plastic figures of Lilliputian proportions and commonplace things such as cameras, watches and even breasts have become so monstrously huge that they've taken over the landscape. But Bousserez's aim is not merely to be frivolous. This is his attempt at pointed visual satire. "Each photo becomes a poetic and humouristic screenplay which can be interpreted as [a] denunciation of our vices," he says. And so they can. 'Plastic Life' tells witty, barbed tales of lechery, vanity, substance abuse and gluttony that, despite their strangeness, strike a familiar chord.

This is great . . . I'm starting the day off with a laugh. And yes, I do get the commentary on our vanity. I love these "little people" . . . mowing a bearded face, doing it 'doggy style' atop the apple. Thanks for sharing, Setty.

Nossa a arte ela sempre fica mais interessante e linda, quase sempre quando se apresenta assim totalmente complexa e criativa, dentro de tudo que já existe, com direções unica que faz da vírgula a ação definitiva, da expressão, esta que si mostra onde quer estiver a ação do artista vivo na sua ação de ganhar o mundo com sua maneira de ser.
estou seguido seu belo trabalho.
