“I just want to be prepared if I have to witness any sudden, discrete phenomenon, somewhere.”
Some people have a seemingly cosmic drive to create–something larger than a living, larger than themselves. It consumes within and without, guiding from one outlet to the next in search of the proper avenue for capturing current realities.
31 year-old Jordane Prestrot–a resident of Guebwiller in Alsace, France, on the stunning frontiers of Switzerland and Germany–has explored video, music, writing, and photography as means for stealing slivers of the world around him, pursuing art since he dropped out of school at the age of 18.
Jordane's existence is a sort of paradox, a balance between an insatiable will to create, a desire for privacy, and, of course, a need to subsist:
“I am an artist, a photographer, a writer and a musician. Those occupations can't afford me a living for now, but these are the only occupations I want to publicly talk about...My biggest concern [with Dispose] was about the treatment of my intimacy: how to show enough, how to not show too much. I am a very secret person.”
Jordane's quest for intimate expression has led him on constant journey through all manner experimental creations: Novels, avant-garde rock, electroacoustic music, and all manner of photographic meanderings.
If you need a soundtrack to Jordane's photographs, he recommends you listen to some of his music. Conversely, “silence is nice too.”
