Ideal City

Intellectual and physical incarnation of Utopia, the term Ideal city means a city which is conceptually developed before being physically built, and its foundation is the result of a unified intellectual will. Unlike the spontaneous cities, which develop gradually as needed depending on many decisions, so organically and sometimes anarchic.

This paradox can also be a metaphor for the mental construction of a picture as well as the artistic choices that this construction involves.

The series Ideal city deals with utopia, dystopia and anticipation. Stéphanie Roland was interested in how the representation of Future can reveal us a lot about our Present. Diverse science fiction topics bring to light actual existential issues: the character searching to survive in a post-apocalyptic world, the representation of our civilisation as an antique world, one that is transformed by meteorological changes.

In this series, Stéphanie Roland’s works blur the boundaries between reality and fiction, as she creates a tautologic science-fictionalisation of the pictures inside the medium itself. The artist collaborates with scientists and makes extensive researches in order to connect Art and Science. She specially focuses on all technology that can enrich classical ways to create pictures while remaining in the field of the photographic mimesis.
