On the verge of visible and invisible and within the aesthetics of discretion, sebastien arrighi observes the landscape that fits into a indefinite continuity of resemblances that keeps a world alive and substitutes itself to the idea of its unity. He explores landscapes in front of his door just as he explores far away lands, where he questions the burst of premature remains, enigmatic figures of our contemporary landscapes.


Sébastien Arrighi was born in 1992 in Ajaccio, South Corsica.

He lives and works in Aix-en-Provence. Graduated with honors of the Aix-en-Provence Graduate School of Art, he was supported by the DRAC in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region through a cultural grant in 2018. Winner of the Extinction Prize launched by Urbanautica in 2019, he has also been represented by the Sintitulo gallery in Mougins since 2018. He teaches photography at ESAAIX’s public workshops.


Whether it’s obvious landscapes or enigmatic scenes, Sébastien Arrighi’s images apprehend reality differently. Thus, the strange corporality that is specific to the mist or streaks of the outdoors, makes up the profound and intimate content of his photographs. Tension and desire result in objects, pieces of landscapes, which thought can sometimes express. It’s about anonymous and opaque relations that occur beyond words, without names. Covered and masked relationships. Just like parallel universes that communicate and eventually mingle together, following geological shifts that would have finally disrupted the order or memory of the times.
