Xavier Delory’s Habitat (2006-2008)

Xavier Delory, born 1973 in Belgium, is a photographer exploring the “landscape in mutation and the drifts of modern man”.

This is his cycle “Habitat”:

“Our countryside (in Belgium as well as in many other western countries) is monopolized by one specific type of houses called “clé sur porte” (turnkey) (def.: Urban prefab cluster of similar forms implanted in the landscape without any effort of integration).

The cycle Habitat throws a look at this type of “architecture”. The concept of protection and stereotyped block is pushed to its extremes (similar to out withdrawal into on ourselves and our formatted lives).”

Xavier Delory is one of the artists exhibited at the Galeria 6Mas1 in Madrid. Here’s the gallery’s Facebook page.
