Dimitri Robert-Rimsky conceives a dialogue in which videos, images and texts make us question the production, distribution and reception of images within media cartography. The following corpus of works creates a dialectical resonation in the minute fractures of the memory and experience, the material and the immaterial.
The constructions of contemporary mythologies are at the heart of his work, as he creates perspective through their underground structures, and the way we understand it. Putting forward their fictional aspects, DRR evades the collective vision, which is often amnesiac, if not opaque. Exploring the semantic differences, he deconstructs the narrative strata that form the virtual network. In this sediment, like cracks, his pieces expose another landscape, sweeping the common towards the sublime. They operate like sequences, the pictures switching into the scenery of a fictional and spectacular society.
Somehow, the images can be used to foresee approaching times.
Multiple realities are engraved into the work of DRR, they work together on different levels of temporality, fusing together with poesy. Bringing to light the mass use of images in today’s society, his pieces are conceptualized by the evolution of new representations and in the construction of the knowledge of these. In highlighting the subliminal political structures, his compositions put into perspective the body of collective imagination like an incontestable truth and question our capacity to speculate over our new legends.
What is a landscape if not a text?
All that remains is a territory of tales.
