Retro Specks Future Pix


Initially conceived as a catalogue of the exhibition Retro Specks Future Pix, the book developed as a pictorial journey across Massot’s 30 years of practice as of the date of publication.


Gilles Massot adopts a multidisciplinary process to establish links between narratives, occurrences and parts of the world. Based in Singapore since 1981, his book Bintan, Phoenix of the Malay Archipelago (2003) deeply influenced his artistic work, which now often deals with history and ethnology, while his conceptual concerns are in the theory of photography and the phenomenon of “recording” the revolutionary medium initiated.

His current pictorial project is centred on research about Jules Itier and the first photographs of Asia made in the 1840s, while his theoretical research explores the relations between the history of photography and that of quantum mechanics. A recipient of the French award Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres, his work has been presented in over 50 exhibitions in France and Asia.
