About the work
Léo Caillard
French, b. 1985
Follow

Léo Caillard’s artwork seeks to reconsider the experience of viewing images in an over-saturated media environment. “We see thousands of different pictures every day...People start to lose the ability to reflect on what they are looking at,” he once said. The artist manipulates photographs to alter viewers’ perceptions and activate new ways of looking. In his “In Museum” series, he features museum-goers in the Louvre, but shifts the scenario such that the artwork appears to be viewed through an Apple interface. In other works, classical sculptures are re-imagined and edited so as to be wearing contemporary clothing. Similarly, in his “War Games” series, he depicts urban business districts, but with the machinery of war—tanks, fighter jets, naval ships—edited into the landscape, revealing the complicity between war and commercial enterprise.
