No 35 Olivier Lovey

Switzerland (1981)

Miroir aux alouettes

Since 2016, Olivier Lovey has been designing large photographic installations indoors and out, playing with the concepts of trompe l’oeil and mise en abyme where reality and its photographic double merge together. For Festival Images, he has produced a custom-made, surrealistic image in the Jardin du Rivage on a colonnaded portico, once the gate to the city. Through an interplay of perspectives and optical illusions, the work presented in Vevey addresses the limits of photography in reproducing reality, while encouraging visitors to take a different look at the architecture that has been a hallmark of daily life in Vevey for decades.
