Anamorphic optical illusions by Georges Rousse

Georges Rousse is a Paris-based artist and photographer that transforms deserted buildings into incredible optical illusions. He explores the materials, colors and the luminosity of places that he transforms like a director, a mediator of the visible and the invisible. Master of optical illusion, he creates spectacular trompe l’oeil which emphasizes the power of light; the space he reveals is mere appearance and illusion.

Whether they represent major characters floating in space, tortured faces, geometric shapes or words, his works have the primary function of establishing a distance between the viewer and the place where he or she is located.

Georges Rousse’s installations, perceived as site-specific, are constructed and deconstructed according to the precise location from where they are observed; however, the final product offered to the viewer is a photograph where the lure is perfect, in which the work is perceived as it should be: the illusion of a transformed space.

    As visitors enter Seeing Forest, they step into a mysterious, forested zone that exists both in the imagination and in Singapore. In this in-between space called the secondary forest - a threshold between old-growth or primary forest and developed areas, between urban and wild, invention and reality - artist Robert Zhao Renhui invites us to consider a complex web of human and non-human co-existence. Seeing Forest encourages visitors to explore the ways in which urban design can shape the natural world, and vice versa, resulting in a new ecosystem of migrant species that echoes the histories, trajectories and makeup of a city’s human population.
