ULYSSE & DARCOE

Fleur Viande

France

2015 -

This series mostly tries to master an absurd subject. Meat Flower is the meeting of an antinomy by shape and inspiration that tends to create a coherent and aesthetically pleasing whole, a new entity. It’s not about a flower or meat anymore but meat flower; a whole carried by a meticulous work of post-production that gives the pictures the feel of a drawing or a painting. The Ulysse and Darcoe duo also give the subject they chose a universal reach that allows a wider reading of the picture: a portrayal of nature or the symbolism of organs and flowers, it’s up to the viewer to choose.
