Essai sur l'image latente / PVL

Aurélie Pétrel, Fabien Vallos - Essai sur l\'image latente / PVL
A short essay on the concepts of "latent images" and "latency" based on the philosophy and history of the work of French artist Aurélie Pétrel.
Published on the occasion of Aurélie Pétrel's solo exhibition PVL at galerie Ceysson & Bénétière, Paris, from June to July 2021.
Aurélie Pétrel (born 1980 in Lyon, France)'s photographic practice questions the status of the image, its use and the mechanisms of its production. Rooted in duration, her research aims to bring the act of taking a shot back to the centre of multisensory thinking by means of spatial devices, combining a visual and conceptual approach in a programmatic series of scenarios.
Exhibited in France and overseas, her work is part of the collection of Centre National des Arts Plastiques (CNAP), of FRAC Normandie Rouen and of FRAC Occitanie Montpellier.
A graduate of the École des Beaux-Arts de Lyon in 2006, Aurélie Pétrel continues her artistic activity while assuming her role as lecturer and in charge of the photography pool and at the HEAD Geneva where she has worked since 2012. She is also co-director of the CIPGP - Collège International de Photographie du grand Paris since 2018.
Fabien Vallos (born 1972 in Paris, lives and works in Arles and Filicudi, Italy) is a theorist, author, publisher (co-director of Mix Editions), and translator. He teaches at the École Nationale supérieure de la photographie d'Arles (ENSP) and is the manager of the Centre de Recherche Art & Image (CRAI).
