The work of Emmanuel Dundic is full of drama, of silence evoking the inner exile and melancholy. Initially a painter, the artist often writes short dialogues, which are not (assertions, questions, distractions from thoughts). These scenes sometimes result in a photography diverted from its object(s) created in function of the events or coincidences. Meteor sentences coming from nowhere. He has a particular interest for the « out of context ». Who speaks to whom, and in what context? Everything is a pretext to puns, anagrams, filters, prophecies, treatments. All the sentences have multiple meanings; some are more obvious but most remain inaccessible. The presentation form varies: edition, projection, distribution... One of his primary formal ways is the production of Blocks (printed MDF, each side is coated with a translucent and matt resin, this gives them the noble appearance of stone or frozen candies). The SPACE precisely presents part of this series within its collection. (ED)
