The House That Burns Every Day.
Photographs by Marina Gadonneix.
32 pp., 16 black & white illustrations, 11x13¾".
Marina Gadonneix’s work weaves a complex link between documentary and fiction through photographs of places given over to temporary neglect. The House That Burns Everyday recalls a fable whose story, in ashes, would no longer reach us. Marina Gadonneix has chosen to haunt a dummy house used by firemen to become familiar with fire and fighting it. In short, a room of fiction. Fire has raged, soon it will flare up again. In this interstice, Gadonneix collects these artificial ruins. From a distance, the spectator can cope with the worst. The worst, in this work, is always yet to come.
