Alain Bublex will be present in the Nave of the CCC OD with a large installation produced specifically for the venue, which will take up film sets. The audience will be immersed in an ambitious cinematographic universe mixing real objects and moving images.

Since the early 1990s, Alain Bublex has been developing gigantic fictions deeply rooted in reality and characterized by a strong concern for plausibility. His tree-like projects combine fiction and reality and transform the city, architecture or landscape in a utopian but still probable way.

Alain Bublex was born in 1961 in Lyon. He lives and works between Lyon and Paris. Since the early 1990s, he has been developing gigantic fictions deeply rooted in reality and characterized by a strong concern for plausibility. His tree-like projects combine fiction and reality and transform the city, architecture or landscape in a utopian but still probable way.

This is the case for “Glooscap” (begun in 1985), an imaginary city with a patiently reconstructed history, for Aérofiat, a DIY prototype of a hybrid vehicle, the result of a 1970s car and aerodynamic research carried out in the 1930s, or for “Tentatives d’expositions”, a series of exhibitions in galleries that exist only through photographic evidence. Alain Bublex’s achievements are not about the object, but about the project. Projects that take shape through the creation of documentation that is as abundant as it is scrupulously realistic. The artist uses processes intended, in the field of human sciences or industry, to record, analyze, plan or document reality. Mappings, drawings, photographs, study plans are thus gathered to credit these imaginary constructions with the seal of authenticity.

He will work in the Nave with a large installation produced specifically for the place, which will use the codes of the cinema sets. The audience will be immersed in an ambitious cinematographic universe mixing real objects and moving images.
