By choosing dark, fascinating scenes, Sigismond de Vajay explores the impact of the consumer culture on our environment. Through traditional media (watercolor, engraving) as well as installations, de Vajay explores, as if he was a landscape architect, the contradictions linked to modernity. He seeks beauty within destruction and decline: the smoke of an industry, an airplane on fire in the sky, a building falling down… In a way, his works evoke imminent apocalypse and disaster. “Thanks to Sigismond de Vajay’s work, we can contemplate the destruction of organic material in all its dramatic extent, the mortal phallic luxury of the big rockets and the technological collapse in his eager willingness to dominate the world”. Pedro Donoso
