Stereoscopic Photography Installation


THE MIRAGE PROJECT [Belleville] is an installation exploring space and volume, place and displacement, sight and site. Windows to another place are presented via medium format stereoscopic slides, overlaying a distant place into the void of the gallery space.

This particular place is a 6th floor, 28sq/m, sub-let studio / apartment in Belleville, a dynamic working class quarter of Paris. It was south facing with wonderful light and moods. To me it represents the end of a 5 year period of living and working in France. Rundown from years of transient tenants, it is textured with memories, dreams and life.

By transposing the artists studio apartment into the gallery the work plays off the tension between the artists intimate space and the forum for public exhibition.
