1900 Paris / MétaMoRpHOse

A second series, « Lecture du Nu » is proposing a vision of erotism in both periods. A combination of erotic pictures of the early 1900's and graphic elements, influences & visions coming from our contemporary world. The result is an erotic-retro-futuristic series. At first glance, the two different periods cannot be clearly distinguished. Pierre Alivon tried not to deform old images but to export them in our current society with today's values (money, sex, illusion of a better world,...). Pierre Alivon has the nostalgia of a period where time could be measured at a slower pace. Erotism is everywhere in our world today with fake images and photo retouching, but old erotic pictures were much more intimate and crude. These 2 visions that a century separates, create a new image. Like a prophecy of the future that could have been imagined more than hundred years ago. Or maybe could we understand this creation as a representation of the future imagined by artists in the early 1900's. Prediction or retrospective vision ?
