Game Over

@ Hybre, Pierre

N/A - AV0036

New

"The Game Over series focuses on a public space where the invading decor, that of the famous Foire du Trône installed every spring on the edge of Paris, could play alone the main role.

Pierre Hybre preferred to aim his camera directly at visitors of all ages wandering the aisles, in the middle of exuberant fairground attractions, the ambient hubbub and the smell of cotton candy. He could have been tempted by a critical approach to popular leisure and amused himself with the sometimes absurd scenes he encountered at random during his wanderings.

Kids from the suburbs alone or in groups, couples with or without children, girls bands, young and old, come here with their child's soul. Happy winners leave with their arms oversized with oversized stuffed animals like trophies.

Without failing to make us smile, Game Over has a heavy atmosphere where idleness floats. This is the paradox of the carnival, because behind the facade of entertainment, people also come here to avoid boredom.

Through a dive into popular culture, Pierre Hybre, continues a photographic work on territory and the French society.

  • Text Calligraphy of an Enigma by Fabien Ribéry : "This is the story of a chance encounter, a mad love, a path of desire connecting East and West. It is a story of grace, a story of flights that mustn’t be late. It is the music of the heart, the beating drum, set in the no-man’s land between empty and full, full and empty. Olivier Brossard has put together...
