About

in “One”, often referred to as the “Guerrilla Tea” series, Pierre Sernet presents photographs in which randomly selected guests, from a variety of cultural worlds and backgrounds, are invited and shown sharing a bowl of Tea. Utilizing a stylized Japanese Tea Room in the shape of a cube, in which he performs traditional Tea ceremonies, Sernet plays on the juxtaposition of out of context and apparently incompatible cultures or environments. With the cube being used as a conceptual space, Sernet invites viewers to place their own set of cultural, spiritual, religious or philosophical values within it. The purpose is to have audiences question the cube’s opposition or similarities to the diverse environment in which it is placed and have viewers see each of these spaces in a new and different way, ultimately showing that these seemingly different and incompatible worlds are in fact based on similar universal values that can enable seemingly different worlds to cohabit together. The tea ceremony of this work is performed at the Airport of Charles De Gaule in Paris. The busy background of the passengers in line for their destinations creates a sharp contrast with the peaceful spirituality of the tea ceremony taking place in the foreground. This is print #1 of a limited edition of 10 Other titles available for the "One" series are: T013, Rockefeller Center, New York, USA,2001 T105, Dinh, Halong Bay, Vietnam, 2006 T075, Wan-Chang, Great Wall, China, 2005 T058, Malcolm, Sunset Beach, Hawaii, USA, 2004 T057, Kate, Ashokan Lake, USA, 2004
