Clark and Pougnaud are two French artists and have formed a duo since the late 90s.
This series “A tribute to Edward Hopper” dates from 2000 but resonates particularly with the current situation.
A feeling of loneliness emerges from it and is disturbing by its character of revealing a shared emotion.
Clark takes the photos while Pougnaud builds miniature sets.
For them, these images “evoke the loneliness that inhabits every human being confronted with life. It looks like a moment of frozen isolation, regardless of the number of people who appear in the photo.”.
