Nadir Jean-Philippe Jullin

A nadir is the point on the celestial sphere representing the vertical downward direction. It is the position of the sun at midnight. By extension, it means the worst time, the time of least hope and success. Nadir is the study of the lowest point. This work describes a descent in layers, depicting a dystopian vision in which any sense of improvement is illusory. The materials are abstract, born of random processes with heavy treatments, organized in time like an implosion. The darkness is then contrasted with sometimes pop sounds, a. kind of hallucinated version of an apathetic world. Dark, plastic and absurd, Nadir is ten minutes of useless noise. This is my vision of the world: downward.
