Gods & Beasts
Rémi Chapeaublanc travelled on a solitary voyage through Europe and Asia to reach Mongolia. This country where Man has not yet desecrated Nature inspired him to create the photographic series Gods & Beasts.
Which are the gods, and which are the beasts? Or rather to whom are they the Gods and for whom are they Beasts?
Gods & Beasts consists of raw portraits. While there is an ambiguous hierarchy between men and animals, this series - created outside of a studio, in the original environment - overcomes this cultural order. This work of bringing to light these relationships - in an almost ceremonial manner - places these Gods and Beasts for once on equal footing. The viewer is thus left the sole judge of the boundary between animal and divine.
