Joachim Devillé is a Belgian artist who mostly draws detailed charcoal pictures. His interior series represents classically composed scenes with a highly contrast between the framed windows, the natural light sources and the semi-obscure empty rooms. Some of the settings are invented, some are reconstructed thanks to photographs and archival research, some are a combination of the two. The unsettling atmospheres in Devillé’s Rooms in his series “An Imaginary Reserve” correspond to the story of the Villa in Berlin which was the place where Nazi officials met on January 20th, 1942, to organize and start the final solution.
