This series of photographs is an invitation to a peaceful motion,

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.
