Le ban des utopies
“Le Ban des Utopies prend place dans un univers atemporel. Il met en scène l’échappée d’une communauté d’hommes libres animés d’un esprit nomade. Ils traversent, comme nous, un monde où la catastrophe plane sur le lieu commun. Appelés à se rencontrer, leurs corps restent disponibles à toutes formes d’improvisation : franchissement, récupération, installation… Ils sont aptes à réinvestir les vides générés par le processus de construction - déconstruction de la ville.”
1984, George Orwell - Club des Libraires de France 1956 /

This bed of greenery inspires not abandon but an awaiting. Overhanging a vast motorway junction, circled by towers, it is a vegetal stop against which the historical axe of the Parisian West comes to break. On this section of motorway returned to a state of wilderness, the stones tell no more stories. They allow the unexpected to come into being.
Sensitive to the interactions of the natural and the man-made, Cyrille Weiner interprets the space in its force of both destruction and renewal: spurts of sap crack through the cement, fluid sands destroy the supporting walls, plants grip onto the motorway parapets. Everything communicates, overflows, spreading out over the infrastructures that shape the landscape to the measure of man. The wasteland, with its tangles of plants, converts the territory into a free-zone, open to a multitude of uses. As if escaped from towns in which introversion, private property and isolation triumph, a few men here seem to reconquer their own time, energy and imagination. Cyrille Weiner observes this concrete reappropriation of the wasteland, the bodies and hands that dig, plant, weed and hence create the field. But this primary reality is filtered, transcribed into a fiction of the end-of-the-world and a paradise lost. In this wasteland of designs suspended, usual bearings of time become blurred ; these men come to resemble both the first and the last. (From Urban To Human, by Marguerite Pilven)
Created upon the initiative of Judith and Lucien Hervé, in memory of their son Rodolf, according to the objectives originally established by its founders. The purpose of the prize –open to candidates of all nationalities, resident in France or in Hungary for at least three years– is to assist a photographer, between 25 and 43 years old, in exposing his work to a larger audience.
The École Spéciale d’Architecture in Paris, is a privileged partner of the Lucien Hervé and Rodolf Hervé Prize and currently hosts the Cyrille Weiner and Ildi Hermann exhibition, in the Galerie Spéciale.
La fabrique du pré, exposition de Cyrille Weiner, lauréat du Prix Lucien Hervé et Rodolf Hervé 2012.
L’exposition est présentée dans le cadre du Mois de la Photo à Paris, du 17 novembre au 7 décembre à la Galerie de l’Ecole Spéciale d’Architecture, 254 Bd Raspail, Paris 14e.
