Auschwitz-Birkenau coordinates 50°02'N - 19°10'E. "Dawn came on us like a betrayer; it seemed as though the new sun rose as an ally of our enemies to assist in our destruction.” Primo levi.

Roland Quelven Born in Quimper, France in 1967. Napolecitta or the fractal virtues of Detail: I started this project in 1999 through paintings devoted to a description of an ancient imaginary city named Napolecitta (fusing Napoli and Cinecitta)
In 2009: Animations Flash and digital collages. Since 2010: Videos in quicktime format. The ancient city has become an encyclopedic world also named Napolecitta. Most of my videoworks are numbered assembling a register, an imaginary official record. Combinations of numbers, maps, writings, paintings and masterpieces of Art history digitally assembled, all this seen through the prism of the Detail.
