In his new series, Clément Chapillon explores the notion of geographical and mental isolation through an island space in the Aegean Sea. If the word "isolated" literally means "shaped like an island", we can rightly ask ourselves what form do the time, the other, beliefs and the imaginary take in this finite world bordered by the infinite.
For the past twenty years, Clément Chapillon has been regularly visiting the island of Amorgos, located in the heart of the Greek archipelago of the Cyclades. With his Plaubel Makina 67 (medium format analogue camera), he has put together a narrative in images that is both documentary and metaphorical about the contradictory feelings provoked by the insularity of this rocky, arid and wild territory.
