Currently on show from now to end February is an exhibition entitled Mimesis by Paris-based photographer Seb Janiak at Visionairs Gallery, Singapore.
In a photographic career spanning 25 years, he has achieved fame, helming a list of the most influential musicians such as Janet Jackson, Robbie Williams and Daft Punk under his video portfolio. He is a pioneer in the artistic field and is renown for his consummate skill in digital editing. Janiak looks intrinsically at humanity his works opens an audience to new perspectives and meaning.
In this exhibition, Janiak creates an ongoing photo-montage project where he digitally pieces the wings of insects into flower-like forms. Mimesis then, is a strange interaction between different organisms to create an adaptive strategy involving three species which is the: model, the imitator and the dupe.
Perhaps the most important takeaway of Mimesis, that Janiak would like us to have is that the photo-series involves memory and informations. As Ruppert Sheldrake said, the “hypothesis of morphic fields and morphic resonance, which leads to a vision of a living, develops a universe with its own inherent memory”.
The exhibition invites us to look deeper into morphic fields and the vast information that our spirit conscience has to offer.
