Léo and Ben are two friends who met in engineering school: golf and art have always brought them together to the point that today they have decided to embark on artistic creation and create a studio creative in Switzerland in Zurich where they live.
Their Studio LIM. (for Less Is More) proposes as a first project TEE TIME. (with a dot, please! ) that Golf Planète presents to you today.
Tee Time, project
Their objective: to offer very decorative photographs, inspired by the learning and movement of swing: the use of tees will seek its inspiration in abstract expressionism and minimalism.
Léo Chevailler and Ben Moreau told us about their interdisciplinary research drawn from the philosophy of the Bauhaus movement, using different mediums such as photography, design or computers. “Our years of competitive golf have taught us fundamental values in understanding and dialogue with oneself, the confidence to carry oneself and push oneself to excel.
This is the basis of the sport and in particular of golf where you are constantly confronted with yourself. During and after our studies, we developed this dialogue through different channels of creation: artistic, associative, entrepreneurial.
Both of us have always been made aware of art by our respective families, from a very young age. So much so that today, Ben has become a professional photographer with a passion for architecture and the Bauhaus school. We launched our Studio in order to exploit and channel this need for dialogue, for expression, this need to push our limits.
Golf being part of our life, it was natural to merge these two passions! This association created the TEE TIME project. “As mentioned above, the study of the Bauhaus allowed us to understand how this movement was built on a philosophical model: bringing together different arts and different craft techniques to initiate the creations of tomorrow.
We underestimate everything that this school has to bring to architecture, modern design and art in general, and that is also why we also claim to have a Bauhaus spirit, this collaborative approach. Driven by this multidisciplinary creative spirit, TEE TIME.
also has its source in the abstract works of Jackson Pollock and in particular in a new interpretation/use of his “Dripping” technique, with these notions of chaos and fractals which result from it”
