“I want to see something dreamy with the familiar, I want to show a dream of a child hunting a shooting star.”
Jacques Brun investigates nature as an utopia and on the romantic perception that we create of it.
He explores the connection with everyday life, memories and dreams through exceptional journey and how various environnements became domesticated. He employs photography to create non narrative storylines: collections that could combine different typologies of images to express metaphoric quest. He offers a sense of nostalgia for humanity whilst expressing his questions surrounding dreams. His work is a story on the border of two worlds: the reality inspired by the ordinary and the imaginary world construct on common myths.
Born in Switzerland, Jacques Brun is graduated from ECAL in 2015
& is currently working and living in Paris as an Artist and a Commercial Photographer.
