*허구속의 건축을 이야기 하다 [ Filip Dujardin ] Fictions


건축적 양식을 빌어 표현하는 예술일까?

예술적 한계를 극복하고 싶은 건축일까?

건축가 필립의 픽션에는 건축과 예술이 맞다 있는 경계의 언어가 새롭게 쓰여져 있습니다.

그렇게 건축의 현실적인 조각들은 거대한 비현실적인 작품이 됩니다.

하지만 건축적 언어로 쓰여진 그의 조각들은 현실에서 가능한 테두리 속에 존재하며

언제든지 새롭게 구축될 여지를 남겨 둡니다. 어쩌면 이와같은 작업이 다른 건축가들에게

더 많은 영감을 선물 할 수 있는 자극제가 될지도 모르겠습니다.

사실 예술과 건축의 삶의 단편들을 만들고 거기로 부터 영감을 얻는 일련의

동반자 입니다.

Filip Dujardin takes the architect’s role in his latest work ‘Fictions’, removing the unavoidable and compromising responsibilities of the designer to express pure sculptural form.


His latest collection of photographs - exhibited just recently in the Highlight Gallery, San Fransisco - realises a long-time dream of Filip Dujardin, who constantly seeks to capture art within architecture. Building designs can often be too controlled, or uninspiring, encumbered by programme, building cost, etc. and so he set to create his own. He used collections he had gathered of various building types, and abstracted certain typologies and archetypes, by scale, density or gravity, using computer software to enhance certain aspects of the architecture. Dujardin explained to Frame, ‘As I am not an architect, I cannot build actual structures, but doing it in a virtual way was something that opened a whole new way of working for me.’


Many of the resultant compositions are decontextualised, which makes them seem further abstracted. Dujardin also restricted himself to using buildings with a certain ‘patina’ or archaic look. He felt the contrast between history and his abstraction would create the ‘historical’ expression he looked to achieve, as if they were ancient monuments being rediscovered my architectural lovers.


The result is a series of buildings that have been pushed to the limits of reality, whilst ensuring they are still readable to the viewer. They instantly grab your attention. They are beautiful, striking and playful. On closer inspection one realises there is something unusual about them, something not quite right. It is then clear that they are an invention of the mind, and you want to look even closer, and scan each of the foreign facades, and imagine yourself in each new environment.
