Vincent Fournier – ‘Brasilia’

Vincent Fournier’s series ‘Brasilia’ – a record of investigations on the Brazilian capital’s contemporary built city landscape, offering alternative narratives on architecture and environment.

“For me, the city of Brasilia with its radical architecture presents a particular interest in its relationship with time and fiction, like a modernist temple fossilized in a utopian future, which did never happen. Walking down the city transfers us into the spectator of a full-scale film set, feeling like the nostalgia for a future which belongs to the past, mixing fiction and reality, just like the novel Fictions written by Jorge Luis Borges. Brasilia, as other impossible places, evokes a collective dream and allows to imagine fiction.”
