IMAGE-FICTION, IMAGE-ACTION. Mise en jeu de la photographie contemporaine entre théorie des mondes possibles et théorie des actes d’image

Abstract : This research focuses on the possibility of applying the theories of possible worlds to the visual arts. First, an introduction to this theoretical universe is presented, starting from its foundational texts, as well as its application in literary studies, to the context of the visual arts. An introduction to speech act theories is also provided, in order to arrive at the field of image acts. Through a heterogeneous corpus, composed of contemporary photographs produced by artists of various nationalities, the categories of image-fiction and image-action are developed, articulating a theory of visual possible worlds. The dynamics between the image, the artist and the viewer, triggered by these two types of images, are then analyzed through the theory of image acts. Starting from a theoretical and image-based research method founded on complex thought, we explore the idea of a transmission of "ways of worldmaking", which emerges from an active image-fiction proposing an image play. The hypothesis worked on is that the act of self-denunciation of the image-fiction allows the viewer to find trails of the image’s manipulation, initiated by the artist's "fingere". Finally, the image-fiction – produced, manipulated – enacts a simulation of a fragment of a possible world as it presents other versions for the world of phenomena, for history and individuals. In this way, it opens up paths from fiction towards action, inviting the viewer to construct new collective contexts in the present.
