The Renault island

Pierre-Olivier Deschamps had the opportunity to spend winter 2003 producing a series of shots inside the Renault factory on the island of Séguin. The winter light which was flooding in from all over this disused industrial cathedral, emptied of its assembly lines, showed an extraordinary trail of colour. Here, what used to be a piece of signage or an environment used to differentiate between the areas of activity has become a strictly photographic thread.
These images translate impressions arising out of wandering around a factory which appears to be moving, almost alive, and which even so is scheduled to be destroyed forever. Pierre-Olivier Deschamps attempted to use photography to record this lost heritage and its prospects in their final gift of light.

The exhibition consists of 12 colour prints laminated on aluminium and rigidified with recessed frames, format: 100 x 125 cm. The whole exhibition requires approximately 15 linear metres.
