Large scale installations blur the line between real and photographed

In this project, entitled Miroirs aux alouettes, Oliver Lovey creates illusions aiming  to immerse the viewer in another world, and meanwhile to start a reflexion on the photographic medium.

In my Miroirs aux Alouettes series, begun in 2016, I create impossible images, close to surrealism, by placing stickers in public or an exhibition space. By confusing the real and its double, I question the limits of image and representation. I revisit the notion of perspective, trompe-l’oeil and mise-en-abyme. Originally thought to be photographs, my images also work as installations.
