by Erwan Bouroullec
Blurring the boundary between art and coding, Erwan Bouroullec’s remarkable body of work explores how we experience and understand our surrounding environments. The series invites us to notice the effects of our actions, and offers a poignant perspective on our incremental distancing from nature.
“The countryside is for me where human presence overlaps onto nature. [...] So I am looking for this: the overlaps and impressions.” - Erwan Bouroullec on his series ‘The Impossible’.
Edition of 50
Brutalist buildings are spread out everywhere In the countryside. Built all around with metal or carpentry, their expression is, in a way, very conceptual. They are made of symmetry: perfect planes and reflective surfaces, often synthetics colours. They resist the wild because they’re high and coated.
One of the strongest signs of mankind is symmetry.
You can spot it miles away.
My drawings just repeat this, overlaying simplistic grids and order onto the magic of wilderness. My mood is romantic, meaning that looking into the panorama is a way of reflecting my own nature. Again, lost in attempts of control, while not embracing what’s in front of me.
Looking at nature is always a very strong mirror.
