Plastic Colors leads you through a look alike scenery on a hallucinated path.
“French artist Marguerite Bornhauser’s photographs are “a spontaneous exploration of the world.” In her recent series Plastic Colors, Bornhauser has deftly captured the many synthetic textures of today’s world. In her photographs, hues are unnaturally vivid and the juxtapositions among them are bold. Her eye gravitates toward textured surfaces, and her camera’s flash serves to highlight the material characteristics of what she photographs. There’s the cool metal gleam of a lime-green hand truck parked next to a bright-red wall; the slick and nubbly surfaces of train’s laminate-panelled wall and fabric-covered seats; or the crinkled clothes of her human subjects. When people appear in these images, they’re often seen in fragments. Bornhauser moves in close to her subjects, which speaks of both her innate curiosity and the surprising intimacy of everyday encounters on the street. “I capture the visible surface of a situation in a given location,” she writes. “I believe in the evocative power of surfaces.”

Plastic Colors intends to open up and to lead you on a path where the world, its scenery and everyday objects and simulacra connect.
“A delightfully effervescent musing on the hallucinatory nature of the lurid and synthetic nature of the colors that surround us in modern life.”
Greg Hobson, Curator at National Media Museum, London, 2016
