Series of 35 color photographs, chromogenic print. Paradis Artificiels (Artificial Paradises) is made up of views of a number of parks and gardens all created in Paris in the 18th and 19th centuries, such as the Parc de Bagatelle, the Buttes-Chaumont, the Bois de Vincennes, the Jardin d'Agronomie Tropicale (Garden of Tropical Agronomy) and the Serres d’Auteuil (Greenhouses of Auteuil). Paradis Artificiels brings together images of luxuriant nature along with the whole symbolic vocabulary of gardens, including exotic plants, chinoiseries, caves, greenhouses, waterfalls, rivers, entirely rebuilt and fashioned by the hand of the landscape architect. Here Nature herself is depicted as a microcosm, a world of her own and alludes both to our idea of Nature and also to the world around us.

Studio Marlot & Chopard is a French duo artist working with photography and video since 1996. Their work questions natural or urban landscape and architectural heritage, but is also about dreaming and the atmosphere the night can provide. Their work mainly focuses on creating a fantasized territory, using through the series components the reconstruction of imaginary places or the juxtaposition of temporal layers, whose unity is aesthetical above all. Marlot and Chopard are keen to get the emotion that an unexpected encounter with the eeriness of a place can offer, also its significance with a familiar reference which provides its beauty, by visiting and discovering more and more places without looking back. Indeed, the images cherish multiple references to other art forms, whether it is painting or sculpture, and cinema or music for the videos, as well as personal anecdotal references which lay among the works like a life pattern or a way of being and thinking evolving throughout the possible encounters and other circumstances of life. To fix the image is also a way to restore the encounter’s richness, to grab a moment of grace and give it back through the photographic object.
