created out of creative connection
POL ET SIMON
THEY ARE TWO LOVING, INSEPARABLE BROTHERS, EXPERIMENTING AND SHARING SINCE THEY HAVE BEEN YOUNG, AN UNIVERSE OF UNEXPECTED SITUATIONS, MOMENTS AND ENERGIES. THEY BELIEVE IN ART AS AN UNIVERSAL TRANSMITTER. THROUGH THE MEDIUM, THE ARTIST AS SERVANT ENTERS IN A MYSTICAL AND EMOTIONAL WAY IN CONTACT WITH THE OBSERVER. SINCE AN UNDEFINED TIME POL&SIMON ARE HUNTING AND SEARCHING FOR SOMETHING THEY STILL CANNOT EXPLAIN WITH WORDS. THE ARTISTS ARE CURRENTLY LIVING AND WORKING IN PARIS AND COLOGNE.
Through an image that contains meaning. Acceleration is what symbolizes the culture we live in it gets constantly faster.In our recent artproject we captured through photographs the heart of several crystals. An exploration of how, higher harmonics found in nature could transform our mood and be an antidote to raging times. We ourselves have explored diverse possibilities to bring our mind to calmness through meditation. What we have discovered and felt have been influencing the protocol of our recent art project, depicting a mood through the various vibrations found in the heart of rare and precious stones. At the beginning of our creative research the matter of the crystal was still visible, what lead to a certain distraction. Yet our perception was still disturbed by the presence of form and materiality that immediately triggered our brain in order to understand rationally its genesis. This induced a higher level of abstraction, where light and colors directly rises to our mind and lead naturally to a deeper perception of what we feel, once the various intellectual barriers have been dissolved. It is somehow the viewer’s personal door opening to an intimate unknown world that will come through. For this photographic series we have been undergoing a long process comparing several papers and print processes to increase the intensity of the transfigured energy; thus augmenting the emotional effect of our artwork.
We are now extremely curious about setting the work into real spaces where the sensual delight of colors pervade the room and its viewer. In this brief explanation of our recent work, we are not intending of complexifying something that aims to be perceived intuitively through a direct and sensitive perception. We don’t want to add more confusion to a hypertrophic artificial world misleading us from who we are: “ sensitive beings „. A path towards deceleration.

Taking contemplation as a ship, we observe, we create, we listen, we are one together. The mindmountain arises, by feeling inside what we percept outside. We are a deep sea of information.
We are an open, multidisciplinary French-German art collective, formed by Olivier Pol Michel, Frank Hoffmann and Jérôme Michel.
