First Solo Exhibition of French Photographer Jonathan Jimenez in China

Recurring event see all

November 22, 2020 @ 10:00 am 5:00 pm

创新综合文化平台设计互联长期关注可持续发展,以及人与自然的共生关系。作为2020第七届中法环境月的特别活动,设计互联与法国驻广州总领事馆共同呈现《人类离开时,_ 当代遗迹中的自然狂欢》——法国知名摄影师乔纳森·吉梅内斯在中国的首次个展。他的摄影作品展现了全球各地的当代遗迹,以自然的靠近、渗透、生长与回归四个章节,透过优美但却暗藏荒芜的画面,让我们身临其境地感受人类离开时的自然狂欢,从而提出一个最根本的问题:栖居于地球上的人类,应该如何平衡自身与自然的关系?

Innovative cultural hub Design Society values sustainability and balance of human inhabitation with nature. As a special program of the 2020 7th Edition of The Franco-Chinese Month of The Environment, When we left, _ Naturalia: Chronicle of Contemporary Ruins — the first solo exhibition of French photographer Jonk in China is co-hosted by Design Society and the Consulate General of France in Guangzhou. His camera framed thousands of contemporary ruins in more than 50 countries all around the world.

Through four acts — Natural Proximity, Natural Penetration, Natural Growth and Natural Return — his beautiful though desolated photographs bring us to the sites of natural carnival when the human is gone, and interrogate the fundamental challenge for the human being: how to balance our relationship with nature?

中法环境月由法国驻华大使馆创立于2014年,每年一届,旨在提高人们对环境问题的认识,并促进中法之间的环境保护合作。乔纳森·吉梅内斯出生于1985年,33岁时他离开金融行业,专注于做一名摄影师。他长期关注自然议题,先后出版了五本摄影作品集。他的作品曾发表于《国家地理》《建筑日报》《安邸AD》《英国广播公司》《孤独星球》等知名媒体。

The Franco-Chinese Month of The Environment was established by Embassy of France in China in 2014 and is held annually. It aims to raise public awareness of environmental issues and facilitate relevant collaboration. Born in 1985, Jonk left the financial industry at the age of 33, and had been focusing on his career as a photographer. He is devoted to the exploration of the relationship between nature and human being, and has published five personal catalogues. His works were seen on National Geographic, ArchDaily, Architectural Digest, BBC, Lonely Planet, among others.

序 · 幕

  • Prologue –

自然重生势不可挡。

自然开始靠近一栋意大利别墅的外部,

In the overwhelming rebirth process of nature,

nature began to approach the exterior of an Italian villa;

然后渗透到一间比利时温室的内部,

and then penetrate the interior of a Belgian greenhouse;

随后,它在一座波兰宫殿的中庭生长

It has subsequently grown in the atrium of a Polish palace;

最终,自然将“吞噬”古老的庄园

In the end, nature “swallows” the long-established manor.

第一幕 · 自然的靠近

  • Act One: Natural Proximity –

一旦人类建造的事物被废弃,

自然就开始悄然靠近,

Once the artifacts and buildings are abandoned by human beings,

nature starts reclaiming the place starting from the outsides quietly.

水库Reservoir, 中国China, 2017

在建筑的外墙、雕塑、喷泉上,

并逐步为下一步的渗透做准备……

On the exterior walls of buildings, sculptures and fountains,

nature begins to appear and gradually prepares for the penetration…

第二幕 · 自然的渗透

  • Act Two: Natural Penetration –

在废弃物的外围打好基础后,

自然开始逐步渗透人类废弃的一切事物,

城堡、宫殿、花园、游泳池……

After laying a good foundation on the periphery of ruins,

nature gradually began to permeate everything discarded by human beings.

It includes castles, palaces, gardens, swimming pools…

宫殿Palace, 葡萄牙Portugal, 2019

无私的自然接纳着人类丢弃的所有事物,

以势不可挡的气势渗透到废墟之中。

Nature unselfishly takes in all that man has thrown away

and overwhelmingly grow from the ruins.

第三幕 · 自然的生长

  • Act Three: Natural Growth –

除了从外部靠近,

自然有时会直接在建筑物的内部生长,

In addition to being approached from the outside,

nature sometimes grows directly inside the buildings.

一棵小树苗将会长成一片参天大树,

一棵蕨类植物也会爬满整面墙壁,

这些都是画面中的美丽元素。

A small sapling will grow into a towering tree,

and ferns will climb all over the wall.

All of which are beautiful elements in the picture.

剧院Theater, 阿布哈兹Abkhazia, 2019

自然随心所欲地生长着,

伺机等待着一个机会,

与渗透进来的其它自然之物融合,

等待着自然的回归……

Nature grows freely,

waiting for an opportunity

to blend with other natural elements,

laying the foundation for the return of nature…

第四幕 · 自然的回归

  • Act Four: Natural Return –

自然靠近、渗透、生长,

最终回归到废弃的人造物中,

环抱着它们。

Through proximity, penetration, growth,

nature eventually returns to the abandoned artifacts

and encloses them in its arms.

车库Garage, 比利时Belgium, 2016

人类遗弃的汽车、庄园,

最终都会被自然“吞噬”,

与自然融为一体。

The abandoned cars, farms,

will eventually be “swallowed” by nature,

and integrated with nature as a whole.

自然比人类更为强大,也更为包容,

以宽容的心接纳着人类的贪婪与欲望。

Nature is more powerful than human beings, and more tolerant,

with a forgiving heart to accept human’s greed and desire.
