This series of photographs is an invitation to a peaceful motion,
the tranquility of a forest water. Human presence, which carries out
small tasks according to the rays of the sun, reflects our relationship
to the environment in all its simplicity. Photographed from the shore or
from a canoe, the images of Lucas Olivet are the fruit of patient work.

The photographs of the series Kopiec Bonawentura takes its origin from a quote by
french author Alfred Jarry from its play Ubu Roi (1896): Set in Poland, that is to say nowhere.
The photographer builds a multiple and transnational answer, somewhere between Poland
and the exile lands of its diaspora called Polonia. He lets himself be driven by a Polish legend,
the one of Andrzej Tadeusz Bonawentura Kosciuszko that historians call the last knight or
the first citizen of the world. Kopiec Bonawentura examines the uncertainties of memory
where photographs exist to contradict one another and to build a narrative that is elusive.
