In 1714, architect Franz Beer built the Abbey church of Bellelay. Enormous pilasters, decorated with lavish ornamentation, monumental emptiness and a fascinating play of light still captivate 300 years later. The foundation of the church is dedicated to the appreciation of this baroque monument. Every year in the summer months, the church hosts an exhibition of contemporary art of Swiss artists. To mark the anniversary, Basel-based artist Renate Buser presented photographic installation “Barock” – photographed elements of architecture printed on oversized canvases in the incredible baroque setting of the abbey.

The architecture of the exhibition space is it’s real subject. Renate Buser’s approach engages with shifting scales and in doing so creates trompe l’oeil-like illusions. The images celebrate architectural elements from different angles, creating a playful dialogue with the volumes and distances. This realistic imagery is then presented amongst the columns and the arches throughout the rooms – challenging the very perception of the space, while proportions trick the eye providing an immersive and cinematic experience. “The tension between photography and architecture for me is that they contain different temporalities. The ‘content’ of my work reveals itself in the simultaneous experience of real space, which is in constant movement and change, and fictitious space. There is no ‘correct’ location, as there is no photo showing everything”, explains the artist.

In her characteristic style blending photography, art and architecture, she took certain architectural details from the surrounding architecture and blew them up in size, sometimes reversing them as well. This realistic imagery is then presented set in between the columns and the arches throughout the rooms, making for a new and slightly off-setting space where perspective and proportions trick the eye of the visitor for an absorbing cinematic experience.

De installatie Barock is gemaakt van foto’s van barokke elementen uit de Abdijkerk van Bellelay, gebouwd in 1741 door Franz Beer. Navigeer je met de foto’s door de barokke architectuur met grandioos versierde pilaren en bogen. Renate Buser maakte deze foto’s en plaatste de realistische, maar platte beelden in de kerk om zo te kunnen spelen met onze perceptie.

Renate Buser, une photographe suisse, nous fait perdre nos repères en proposant d’énormes photographies en anamorphose. On peut lire ici un cours descriptif de son travail, mieux décrit que ce que je pourrais faire :

« Qu’elle dynamise une architecture en accrochant des photographies en angle ou qu’elle crée une simultanéité spatiale impossible en retravaillant ses photos argentiques, ses travaux ne sont jamais de simples représentations, mais un champ d’expérimentation étendu visant à donner une dimension spatiale et temporelle à un médium en 2D ».

Elle surpasse les limites d’utilisations de la perspective en affichant ses images en taille réelle sur les façades in situ. Ses oeuvres bouleversent le lieu, elle le distorde, l’inverse, le traverse, le transperce, le prolonge…
