PHOTO INSTALLATION at VOID
Curated by Sylvia Sachini & Stéphane Charpentier
The installation presents variations of a cluster of high-rises as a metaphor of human habitat, evoking feelings of solitude and dystopian energy. High contrast black and white pictures of these buildings are installed opposite a series of evanescent portraits, stunned presences, faces seemingly hypnotized by a blinding blaze.

Portfolio review with Stéphane Charpentier
The photography installation is supported by the French Institute of Athens.
Stéphane Charpentier engages an introspective photographic language and builds long-term analog series. He also creates short and long form experimental films, music videos, and installations. He collaborates frequently with musicians and sound artists, and took part in the creation of the band Oiseaux-Tempête, whose first album was inspired by their collective trips in Greece. Since 2013, he has curated and promoted Temps Zero — an international and collective photo & film projection series with live improvised music performances — around Europe. Stéphane Charpentier is based in Athens since 2015.
