Brussels-based German-born photographer Jörg Bräuer opens Conversation en Silence at Vaux-le-Vicomte on Saturday 5 September. Tapping into a early fascination for the secret dialogue between sculptures, German artist and photographer Jörg Bräuer immortalizes 350-year-old Vaux-le-Vicomte statues in a series of larger-than-life photographs. Over the course of a two-year investigation at the chateau and gardens, Conversation en Silence reflects the artist’s meditative approach. His focused yet subjective frame articulating natural decay, the materiality of stone relief and the magic light at dawn.

Conversation en Silence runs from 5 September to 8 November at Vaux-le-Vicomte:
Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte F-77950 Maincy, France
