Reconstitutions: Title of a book published in October 2003 (Phileas Fogg, ninety-six pages) containing the following photographic series: Rêves reconstitués (1998–2000, eight images), Actualités (2001, twelve images), Pornographie (2002, fifteen images, series described in Œuvres [no. 149]), Rugby (2003, fifteen images), Quotidien (2003, ten images). Subsequently, it became the generic term used by Levé to designate these series and, more generally, a working method. Stagings in which I ask models to replay situations inspired by pre-existing images. In this sense, the Fictions are also reconstitutions, and so, partially, are the Transferts. All the reconstitutions are made in the studio, the author striving to erase all sign of excessive characterisation in his stagings, in order to obtain neutralisation by dint of subtraction.
