Quatre grenouilles apparaissent en négatif et déambulent parmi les pages du livre. 4 Frogs est un jeu formel, qui contraste avec le reste du travail de Jochen Lempert. Biologiste de formation, il entreprend dans son oeuvre photographique une patiente observation de la nature, tout en témoignant et mettant en perspective nos représentations du monde organique. Par une approche évoquant Jean Painlevée, il propose ici un regard à la fois nouveau et archaïque sur l’animal, dont les mouvements semblent émaner de la page. Fixés dans un déplacement chaotique, les reflets des batraciens s’organisent pourtant sous notre regard en des sortes de constellations, en une organisation presque sensible et qui indique à notre vue la frontière de notre compréhension du vivant. DV

Ce livre a été réalisé en accompagnement de l’exposition ONYCHOPHORA, qui s’est tenue à art3
(Valence, Fr) en novembre 2010.

Phenotype. Jochen Lempert. Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König

Since the early 1990s, the German photographer and biologist Jochen Lempert (born 1958) has used analogue, black-and-white photography to convey his gently reverential vision of nature and sentience–whether that of animals, plants or humans. Often grainy, sometimes verging on abstraction, and sometimes focusing minutely on the activity of some tiny creature, his photographs exude a simple pleasure in fleeting tranquility. Lempert has also taken a quietly particular stance on the presentation of his work: in exhibitions, his images are presented unframed and tacked up on walls, and his books (among them Recent Field Work and Coevolution) are always immediately identifiable for their modest but exquisite design, printing and paper. Continuing this tradition of gorgeous bookmaking, Jochen Lembert: Phenotype reproduces 450 of his works, most of them arranged in groups and sequences, from more than 20 years of artistic production.
