Hervé Coqueret is an artist whose work feeds on cinema and television images. His installations and his videos are often built around a remix of images projected in unusual circumstances or places. The theme of the “projection” holds a central position in his installations (which combine photos, videos, projections and sculptures). The installations multiply the devices in order to open up the materials and the supports to multidisciplinarity, as in the piece consisting in a full-scale model of a car made of plexiglass. A Ford Mustang, which has a unique status as an object of reference, is placed in a dark room, and the light of a slide is projected onto it from a projector located at a distance. The visitor is encouraged to experience a presence and an absence, an effect of surface and transparency. This highly ghostly image that, nonetheless belongs to the real, also conjures up cinematic memories that take it to the realm of dreams.
