gm project   I   amorces

painting on canvas
photography on lead

The photographs on lead and the paintings that make up amorces come from the collection of impressions, traces, clues that originate along Lake Neuchâtel (Cortaillod and Colombier) where Montandon spent his childhood and his youth, and around the University of Geneva where he studied, presented as a psycho-geographic approach of sorts, in the sense Guy Debord defined it in the 1950s, namely "the study of the effects of the geographical environment, consciously arranged or not, acting directly on the emotions and the behaviour of individuals".
