FILÉES

FILÉES, referring to étoiles filantes or shooting stars, is this pursuit of light by Côté, with consciousness of its ephemerality and perpetual movement. In this series, the real or the place is not captured, but the feeling of it at a specific moment, creating an aesthetic where emotion, invisible, becomes perceptible. The exposure is long, opening a temporal perspective that expands and articulates visually around the horizon. One plunges into the image and into its abstraction as one plunges into oneself.

We also observe the communication between two distinct disciplines, design and photography, with the participation of furniture designer Stephen Redlich, who echoes the photographs colour composition with hand stitched accents into his wood pieces.
