Set on a moving line between a certain
observation of the world and his inevitably unstable account,
Tristan Rolin's artistic research focuses on certain key points:
How, passing through all kinds of layers, statuses or even
phenomena, Can we build images? What do they say about the world,
what do they take/bring with them? Is this substitution legitimate?
What happens when our tools fail and turn on themselves?
By placing images in various contexts, subjects and materials, these questions find anchor points, some convergences: the beginnings of tracks.
Around these questions, several methods are used, ranging from digital exploration to the use of text, from photography to 3d modeling, from image banks to filming. Matter is aggregated, raw. Its longevity and precariousness are displayed in broad daylight, "just to see", as in a vast game with blurry patterns, but then a game that will be ultimately not so futile.
He grew up with the increasing presence of technology. Faster connections, easier acces to information, multiplication of screens and displays, and quasi-instantly reachable cultural content.
