Dove Allouche

Dove Allouche surveys the sensitive abstractions of space and time by different means, at different scales of size and depth, bringing to light in his images new clues of perception.

The works presented in this viewing room take stock of a state of circulation between the infinite outside, the infinite inside and the environment in which the phenomena appear in the image.

On view are works from three recent series: the Absorption Lines, platinum photographic prints breaking down light signals into vertical shades of gray; the Repaints, photographic prints of enlarged samples taken from paintings of the Italian Primitives of the Louvre; and an Emission Reversal, a gas sight on the surface of the sun drawn in carbon after the original photograph.

These points of view are made possible by the instruments which bring the targeted objects back into the visible field (telescope, microscope) and by photography which provides an image while simultaneously allowing it to be brought back to a common ground: the photographs of microscopic objects present qualities appreciably equivalent to those of immense objects reduced to the dimensions of the photographic image, not far from Heraclitus who found in the sun the width of a human foot.

For Dove Allouche, making visible what we do not see does not mean looking for a beyond that would be held elsewhere. Rather than a metaphysics, it is a physics of bodies that determines the relationship to the object and orients the process of revealing its images. It was by applying a filter to what he hadn’t seen yet that Dove Allouche discovered and adjusted the visibility scale which obtained in a new image what appeared nowhere else.

The temporality of a gesture can be read in the expanse of a body, however minuscule. At this limit point of the informed matter, there is a perceptible impression of a frontier zone towards the in-differentiation of space and time, as if they formed on the horizon the circumference of the same circle. This indissolubility results from a recurrent reduction process in Dove Allouche’s approach: whether spatial or temporal, distances are brought back to a common dimension indexed on the perception of proximity.
