Laurent Millet composes chapters of an imaginary encyclopaedia inhabited by objects and photographs created by him and organised in a way that is a mystery to the viewer, ultimately leading us to question the status of the image. À peu près Euclide is a graphic and chromatic exploration of the language of Oliver Byrne, the English author of a book celebrating the marriage of art and science in 1850.
From the making of his models and photographic prints, Millet, like Byrne in this audacious work of scientific vulgarisation, evokes the vocabularies of the twentieth century avant-garde, the scientific laboratory, and our childhood. The book is presented as an unbound portfolio which pages, slipped into a pocket, adapt to the format of the 21 photographs.
