Damien Vignaux: Unchained reality. Explosive collages for HANUY
Damien Vignaux: Intensive Puzzle for NAKID
What do you get when several crazy people combine a couple of crazy things under bizarre circumstances in a weird environment? The solution: An impression of the NAKID magazine.
Their own members say that the NAKID magazine is always on the lookout for new creative people who are worth being presented to a wider public. And because of this it is not surprising that, sooner or later, they came upon the talented couple Damian Elroy Vignaux and Jacqueline Vignaux aka Damian Vignaux.
Damian Vignaux are known for putting a love for detail into their works and especially for creating extraordinary art during post production. This becomes clear again in their picture series Moonlit for the NAKID magazine.
The result is an extremely sensual nude shooting that basically shows a woman on the beach. Due to the moonlight, the model is engulfed in a wonderful blue light which caresses her naked body and makes her glow seductively. In order to artfully disguise the obvious, Vignaux use fragments of these photos and put them together in a new way like a puzzle. The resulting collages appear very surreal and perfectly match the NAKID concept.
Damien Vignaux: Landscape
Since restlessness can even get to you during fall, and at times you just want to take a walk to clear your head, you only have one choice. You’ve got to put on some heavy clothes. Tim Labenda, who titled his fall/winter collection “Wanderlust”, also wants the people who wear his clothes to be fashionable. For the right visual execution he commissioned Damien Vignaux to transport his vision.
Damien does not only continue Tim’s theme by calling his film “Landscape”, he also adds a very own artistic note to the scenes.
Already right from the beginning of the film he is fully in theme. It starts with a tracking shot through industrial architecture in which he follows the lines and geometry of the buildings in a way that lets the static elements be interrupted by clear surfaces, just like Labendas’ style does. This becomes especially clear at the end of the tracking shot, when he captures a woman behind a column. She is wearing a white suit which seems to be a geometrical piece of art. Visually, Damien works with distortions, disturbances and proportional imbalance, which can also be found in Labendas’ fashion.
Music, poetry, filmic art and fashion blend and in the end there is the sentence: “Time is a great architect”, which adds a certain grandeur.
Labenda, who takes his inspiration from everyday life and considers his fashion to be in a state of flux, must be delighted by Damien Vignaux’s visual execution.1:
