Un site collaboratif propose des centaines de photos de lieux fantaisistes et autres situations insolites semblant sortis de l’imaginaire de Wes Anderson, le réalisateur de The Grand Budapest Hotel et de Moonrise Kingdom. Ou quand la réalité dépasse la fiction !

En seulement quelques longs-métrages, Wes Anderson a su se faire une place de choix au Panthéon des cinéastes les plus courus d’Hollywood… Une place couleur pastel, délicieusement rétro, joyeusement fantaisiste, obligatoirement symétrique, et géométriquement magnifique. De The Grand Budapest Hotel à La Vie Aquatique en passant par À bord du Darjeeling Limited et La Famille Tenenbaum, le réalisateur en veste de tweed a rapidement su imposer sa patte sur chacun de ses plans.

Vouant un véritable culte à l’esthétique poétique joyeusement décalée, à l’architecture classique, aux couleurs bonbons à l’ancienne, aux manières façon vieille école so british, aux charmes surannés des trains de la belle époque, il n’a pas son pareil pour mettre en scène avec élégance des galeries de personnages plus loufoques les uns que les autres… Avec donc, en prime, une obsession maladive pour l’harmonie des formes, des couleurs et des gens en plus d’un esprit agréablement mordant.

DÉLICIEUSEMENT ÉLÉGANT

Résultat, le regard aiguisé d’un fan pourrait reconnaître d’un seul coup d’oeil anodin une image issue d’un de ses films. Quitte à la voir dans la vraie vie ! D’où l’idée de ce #AccidentallyWesAnderson : recenser sur un même site des centaines de clichés rappelant l’esthétique si chère au cinéaste américain-parisien autodidacte, d’ailleurs en tournage de son dixième film du côté d’Angoulême.

L’histoire de ce #AccidentallyWesAnderson a commencé sur Reddit, où une bande de passionnés s’amusent à s’échanger des photos que l’on dirait issues d’un décor wesandersonnien. Très vite, effet boule de neige propre à la technologie d’aujourd’hui, un site internet voit le jour, ainsi qu’un compte Instagram. Le premier post ? La photo d’une salle du Stade du 1er-Mai en Corée du Nord, vide, bien évidemment, avec ses chaises vertes, ses portes vertes, son plafond vert, le tout aligné au millimètre près, deux tableaux qui se répondent et des luminaires façon néons scrupuleusement symétriques. Le ton est donné.

ODE À LA SYMÉTRIE

Quelques jours plus tard, l’image d’un hôtel perdu dans les montagnes suisses rappelle étrangement le fameux Grand Budapest du film du même nom. Puis c’est un bureau à Portland mystérieusement bien rangé, deux escalators à Singapour sur fond rose guimauve-tagada, la façade jaune de la Maison du Commandant à Copenhague. Les images se suivent, les couleurs aussi, et le phénomène prend rapidement de l’ampleur.

En six mois, le compte dépasse les 100k abonnés. Un an plus tard, il caracole à 500k, les photos hautement stylisés proviennent des quatre coins du monde. Elles sont signées par des pros, des amateurs ou des passionnés – le site est évidemment collaboratif – et multiplient les situations insolites et autres pépites architecturales géométriques. En bref, un chouette appel au voyage, et une vraie invitation à faire carburer son imaginaire pour transposer la fiction dans la vraie vie. Tout est souvent une question de point de vue. Alors si le challenge vous intéresse, à vos appareils photo, sortez, levez les yeux, et publiez avec le bon hashtag !

#AccidentalWesAnderson Hotel Opera | Prague, Czech Republic | c. 1891 • • The Opera Hotel is a six-story neo-renaissance hotel with 67-rooms and commercial space built in 1891 in the center of Prague, Chzech Republic • • At the time of construction, the only commercial space was a restaurant on the first floor, then during the first half of the 20th century, the floor-by floor hotel conversion took place after the current owners’ ancestor, Karel Ceska, bought the building in 1918 • • Shortly after seizing power in 1948, the Communist Party nationalized the hotel – the communists seized the hotel without Karel’s consent and without compensation • • While under state control, the hotel fell into disrepair due to neglect and mismanagement, and it wasn’t until 1992, after the fall of communism, when the hotel was returned to the Ceska family • • A major renovation then took place and as the hotel needed to continue running while the renovation took place, the project took 12 years to complete • • Know more?

#AccidentalWesAnderson Château de Sceaux | Sceaux, France | c. 1597 • • Château de Sceaux is a grand country house in Sceaux, Hauts-de-Seine, approximately six miles from the center of Paris, France in a park laid out by André Le Nôtre • • The former château was built for Jean-Baptiste Colbert, Louis XIV's minister of finance, who purchased the domaine in 1670 • • The present château, designed to evoke the style of Louis XIII, dates from the Second Empire. Some of Colbert's outbuildings remain, and the bones of the garden layout • • During the French Revolution the property was confiscated as a bien national, its contents sold for the benefit of the nation, and the building bought by M. Lecomte, a merchant of Saint-Malo. • • Under the Consulat, the original château was demolished, but the pavilion of Aurore, the Orangerie, the stables, and outbuildings were preserved • • Today the Chateaux is open to visitors who can tour the house, outbuildings and gardens • • Know more?

_________________________ Cliftonville Lido | Margate, England | c. 1828 • The original Cliftonville Baths which would later be known as the The Lido at Margate were constructed between 1824-1828 by John Boys. Located in the seaside town in the district of Thanet in Kent, England, it was the only known example of a sea bathing establishment which was dug out of the cliffs, altering the existing topography • At a cost of £15,000, excavated from the chalk cliff northeast of Margate harbor, the site was sold to Thomas Dalby Reeve in 1869 and it was transformed into a drill hall and a boiler house for the local Artillery Volunteers • By 1903 a cinema had been installed into the former drill hall and remained operational until 1924. Two years later, the Clifton Baths were re-modelled under John Henry Iles – an amusement park man who had travelled the world learning the business and constructing and operating parks in Britain • The cream coloured Art Deco complex has porthole windows, bright red roof tiles and its famed four-sided ‘Lido’ beacon. What looks like a purely ornamental tower designed as a prominent landmark to carry the word ‘LIDO’, actually encloses a chimney built when the site was developed into sophisticated sea-bathing complex in the 1920s • The word 'lido’ is used to describe a public outdoor swimming pool and surrounding facilities, or part of a beach where people can swim, lie in the sun, or participate in water sports. On a cruise ship or ocean liner, the lido deck features outdoor pools and related facilities • Today the Lido and the Baths remain closed for over 30 years, the swimming pool has been filled in, but the tower remains a landmark reminder of what the structure once offered • Know more?
