“Creating something is echoing other artists,” Francis Bacon wrote. Illés Sarkantyu, photographer and filmmaker, develops his singular work of mise en abyme based on the work and life of other creators. The series of Lucien Hervé’s archives, thus draw a hollow portrait of Hervé, through his files, its erasures, its notes, as much as a radical photography that confines something of the documentary and the abstraction.
