A large, flowing volume overhangs us. A volume whose perception would be close to that of a large mass of water suspended in space. The volume appears as a “ghost”, resulting from a physical presence close to the immaterial. As if constrained in its verticality, it is, moreover, animated in its interior by perturbations, turbulences, reflections, characteristic of the effects of light in contact with moving water.
In Turbulences, Étienne Rey engages the narrative in his plastic gesture. As if in a less and less improbable anticipation, he summons digital writing and machinery to recreate a universal poetic experience, as much intimate as it is situated, that of abandoning contemplation of the play of light on water. A gentle and desperate gesture by an artist to safeguard an emotion that could disappear with the evaporation of the natural conditions that offer it to us.
