You are invited to the opening reception of the exhibition "Landscape sampling" by the artist Cyril Sancereau Friday, the 15th of September at 6 pm at Architecture Project Valletta


Cyril Sancereau is a French photographer from Paris, based in Malta. A student of architecture and graduate of Beaux Arts de Rennes, Cyril specializes in architecture and landscape photography. He regularly works for a wide variety of architecture firms and magazines and has held several exhibitions. He is also the organizer for the Beneteau Foundation competition, with the objective of encouraging architecture students to promote creativity and innovation. As well, Cyril conducts workshops at MAC VAL (Museum of Contemporary Art of the Val de Marne region), which has participants explore the limits between art and architecture. 

His photographic work tries to document the impermanence and fragility of the landscape. Cyril focuses his attention on fragments of the territory, where the transition and the in-between are revealed. By deliberately choosing to distance himself from the photo essay on a specific place he keeps from his strolls only traces of the fragile and the ephemeral.

While creating his work in the footsteps of “artists walkers” and photographers-surveyors, he nevertheless privileges the notions of wandering and loss of orientation. His images attempt to express the deep sensory and physical transformations that walking brings. The experience of the journey travelled exacerbates perception and receptivity to the landscape. Wandering allows one to let go and question one's own physical, but also social and cultural limits. It is a subjective encounter with an unknown place arousing strong and contradictory emotions. Cyril wanders the landscape by photographing fragments, the “almost nothing" that question the passing time and the difficulty of belonging to a place.
