Laurent Chéhère Flying Houses

The Flying Houses are a surrealistic and poetic vision of old Paris, inspired by Jules Verne, Hayao Miyazaki, Moebius, Wim Wenders, Federico Fellini, Serge Gainsbourg, and more. The series raises diverse subjects like urbanism, architecture, cinema, pop culture, street art, and history. Employing traditional photography and digital manipulation, the series elevates architecture to a new level. The artist takes a variety of residential structures out of their defining neighbourhood backdrops. The images are photomontages of hundred of elements, captured and assembled afterward like a puzzle. Floating amidst the clouds, like kites, the houses tell about the life, the dreams, and the hopes of their inhabitants. Laurent Chéhère’s works have been widely exhibited, e. g. at Paris Photo, The Fence, New York, the Lumiere Brothers Center, Moscow, the Mucem, Marseille. He lives and works in Paris.
