Allouche works with photographic processes, but also with drawing, printmaking, and scientific means, to bring light to natural phenomena that are otherwise invisible to the naked eye. Throughout his work, he has created a “syntax of reproducibility” (as critic Philippe-Alain Michaud has written) in which he masters and reinvents various mechanical processes, parsing them out step by step or slowing them down for examination. The means of representation become subjects in themselves, poetically intertwined with what is happening within the images.

Dove Allouche does not see making the invisible visible as a way to seek the beyond elsewhere. It is not a metaphysics but a physics of bodies that determines the relationship to objects and steers the process by which images are revealed. Applying a filter to the as yet unseeable is how he makes discoveries and adjusts the scale of visibility, to obtain a new image of something that had no prior visible appearance.

—Tristan Cormier, “Dove Allouche: making marks on a new scale” (2021), text written on the occasion of this exhibition
