Biographie de l’artiste

It all began in the winter of 2014, when the artist was invited to create an installation for the famous New York City Ballet. On this occasion, the photographer collaborated with the dancers to reflect on the creation of a series of very original photographic works. The members of the company staged themselves under the direction and JR’s guidance. The artist captured the dancers’ gestures during their rehearsals.

During the course of this exhibition-sale, no less than ten inks on wood were presented to the public, once again impressed by the quality of the photographer’s work, which is strongly influenced by street art. JR always tries to make intimate portraits and to get closer to people in order to probe the deepest part of their soul. This time, he wanted to work with artists to understand their craft, their rhythms and their artistic sensibility. He focused on the movement and finesse of the dancer’s bodies, as well as the subtlety of their gestures. The apprentice choreographer used this unique artistic experience to create an astonishing installation. He came up with the idea of staging the bodies of the dancers in order to create original patterns, thus turning the bodies of the ballet’s performers into pictorial elements rather than central elements. This was the case, in particular, with a gigantic eye observing the public. This installation provoked a reaction from many Internet users who were quick to compare it to George Orwell’s Big Brother eye in the classic novel “1984”. Following the success of this exceptional collaboration, the New York City Ballet company even offered JR the opportunity to choreograph a new performance in the spring of 2015.

As usual, JR surprises us, transcends the codes of photography and magnifies dance to perfection. When dance meets photography, it creates an intimate, subtle and rare dimension. Something that will delight all art lovers.
