Inspired by the cosmic architecture Jaipur’s Jantar Mantar, this book depicts images of buildings (or building fragments) staged and then photographed by Noémie Goudal. They comprise a selection of found architectural imageries that have been enlarged to roughly human size, tiled across multiple sheets of paper, and pasted together onto a light framework. Like set pieces or props, these paper-made structures are transported to an isolated coastal site where Goudal photographs them. The fleeting existence of these mystical architectures in the space of the image, along with the seemingly conflicting settings, play with our sense of scale, geography, and reality.
