Le photographe de mode belge Kurt Stallaert a créé à travers sa série "Bodybuilders", un monde alternatif dans lequel tout le monde serait over-musclé. Une idée originale passée sous le nez des scénaristes de Sliders. Seulement à défaut de nous complexer, tous ces super-corps sculptés ont plus tendance à nous faire flipper qu'à nous charmer... Une série très étrange avec un petit côté inquiétant.

    I’m happy to work on a new art show with @pavleye again. There will be some older work and new work. Date to be confirmed but still 2020. ??? Cleaning Lady / 2008 / Another image from the Bodybuilders’ World Series. This photographic series suggests a surrealistic world in which contemporary ideals are questioned in quiet irony. It explores a universe that is both familiar and yet entirely inexistent. An eye for detail and drama culminates in a tangible tension in each image. A certain intimacy mixes with an irreconcilable distance between onlookers and subjects. We may sense that they want to tell us something, but their message has gone numb, leaving us to imagine what they feel or think. Bodybuilders' World is an invitation to look twice and - though an orchestrated and altered imagery - a reference to the photographic truth. Does reality lie in the authenticity of representation or the genuineness of emotion? @kurtstallaert @pavleyeartandculture #fineart #contemporaryart #contemporaryphotography #popart #pavleyeartandculture #artsy #stilllifephotography #portraitphotography #contemporaryportrait
