Skin to Skin, the concept
If Pierre's (and Anil's) conceptual art is a source of emotion and journey, it is also a "vision", an artistic creation that goes beyond aesthetics. If you are curious, and were moved by Pierre Jalby's artworks, perhaps you will want to find out more about the "Skin to Skin" concept. Below, you will find the presentation of this concept, in their own words, that will allow you to feel the depth and the emotion, and discover the vastness, the full scope, the perspectives. I will now turn the floor over to them...I wish you a good read !
"Skin to Skin, the concept" by Pierre JALBY & Anil-Frank DESAI
Brain imagery, textual and visual Dialogue
Luminography, shaped paper & manuscripture
“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eye." - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Le Petit Prince.
Through our work, we are committed, as artists and as citizens. This commitment structures itself around the bond, the stringency and accessibility which substantiate our artistic concept.
“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” - Albert Einstein.
Respecting this bond connects us to you, our audience, and guides our choice of partners that represent us to the public ; like a foundation which must be constantly built, nurtured, enriched, or consolidated when it cracks.
The creative act
Our creative approach is a simple act that is at the service of a commitment in today’s world, for the sake of a world for tomorrow's world to be reinvented together ; places of utopia. Every act of creation tends to go beyond individuality.
Our creative process unfolds with visual writings, up to the making of the artworks, from literary and conceptual writings until the dematerialized artistic installation.
An approach to conceptual art
For us, conceptual art and the concept around it cannot be merely reduced to an idea. They both offer a thought content, a representation, a technic and a proposal that are all connected to the object possessed.
The conceptual process is just as important as the creation that results from it, involving a compelling, controlled consistency.
Skin-to-Skin addresses conceptual art as the process through which the artist constructs a proposal for the public/visitor/voyager to explore and extends towards individual and collective utopias which which build the future.
The value of a conceptual artwork is measured by the level of emotion it triggers, the depth of the questioning it inspires, and its capacity to find the paths that lead the heart to the soul.
The allegorical motion
With the combination of text and visual, Skin-to-Skin is a projection of a shift in consciousness.
We offer an experience and a vision, an intimate matter that interacts with the world ; a sensory journey, within the depths of the matter and through its faults, to that place where the infinitely small converges with the infinitely large, where emptiness is full; an open door to the immaterial world.
Together, we look for aesthetics, meaning, strength and a narration capable of creating a poetic universe, liable to bring about emotions and provoke self-questioning, namely reaching the conscience.
We define this shifting of the conscience as the meeting ground for interiority and exteriority, a setting where opposite forces confront each other, the in-between two worlds, in-between two skins, the intimate matter, the link with the inner self and the world, both physical and cerebral ; this link, this ability to think of the world, whose post-modern society of retrogressive and autophagic progress tries to take away from us in order to make us more submissive, and which we must recreate and reconquer for the reinventing and the repositioning of humankind.
Ultimately, consciousness is merely spume when faced with a world whose reality we barely perceive.
Serving the allegory, the medium stems from light, sculpted paper and manuscripture. Our precept is to create, using very little : thrift with materials and words.
The visual creation arises from an instinctive and empirical action that falls within different explorative and creative gestures.
It consists of working the light and the paper to conjure up the light-matter and freeing its spirit; perforate the matter to liberate the elixir.
Then follows the aligning and selecting the instant that seizes and fixes the creation by means of photographic technic.
To a voyage, to voyagers...
To reach one’s inner essence in order to reach the essence of the world – from the sanskrit word Bindu : the grain, the seed, the essence, the All.
