Catalogue Note

“Whether they show the interior of an airline plane... or a round table where a few men – of state, presumably – are seared... de Balincourt’s perspectives are extremely distorted. The vanishing point draws us in towards the center of the image and places us at the heart of a deformed cone of vision. Like an omnipotent voyeur with a widen gaze” (Thibaut de Ruyter, ‘The Realistic Naivety of Jules de Balincourt’, Art Press, February 2006, online).
