Unusual encounters at Château de la Roche from 6 to 22 May 2022

Description

Photographic and artistic exhibition by Vincent Laughery, Roelof Overmeer and Séverine Zufferey at the Château de la Roche in Ollon from 6 to 22 May 2022.

Vincent Laughery has been practicing photography since 2015. Born in Huémoz and living in Lausanne, he usually flees the city to photograph Lake Geneva. With the sense of openness it provides in a densely developed region, the lakefront allows him to work on negative space (the void), magnifying the few solitary and enigmatic presences that dot these surfaces of water with infinitely variable luminosities at dawn or in the evening. Roelof Overmeer has been practising photography regularly ever since he realised that "freezing the image" can help us to look and see better. Living in Antagnes and owning a large dog that needs long walks, he mainly photographs birds, butterflies, flowers, leaves, trees, waterways and landscapes in his region. However, he also likes to photograph people, especially when he visits big cities. Although Séverine Zufferey's background is in show business, she has always been interested in other art forms. Today, attracted by volumes, she is exploring the art of shaping cellulose. This malleable material, full of imperfections, allows her to summon unusual presences: ageless beings, reduced to size, who seem to set the scene for a strange yet familiar world. The humanity of her characters is sometimes so intense that she perceives them as little souls endowed with emotions. For this exhibition, Séverine Zufferey also proposes an association with the ceramist Véronique Mooser. Together, they combine their techniques and create a work around the theme of the Japanese warrior.
