Statement

STATEMENT

The convergence of urbanism and landscape is the foundation of my work. Through the use of photography-based research, I observe social structures. I address the ideas of absence, romanticism, and authenticity of experience.

Choosing to study landscape as a cultural construct and a political space, I use the myth of primal nature and apply it to settlements, gatherings, and tourism, observing how our relationship with landscape has turned into a spectacle.

Through a diversity of media, my images represent a landscape that is both beautiful and generic, creating a series of dichotomies between the wild and the tamed, the peaceful and the claustrophobic, the sublime and the picturesque. This viewing experience which could be one of contemplation ends up being one of uncertainty.

 

BIO

Born on July 9, 1983 in Paris, France
Lives and works in New York City, USA
Represented by Fortress To Solitude, NYC
www.fortresstosolitude.com

I was born and raised in Paris, France and have now lived in New York for almost six years.

In 2006, I earned a BFA from ESAD Academy of Fine Arts, France, and in 2008 a MFA with honors from ESAD and KUVA National Academy of Fine Arts, Finland. I then earned my M.A. in Political Science with honors in 2009.

I have exhibited in the USA, France, Italy, Sweden, and the UK, including solo and group shows at the following venues a.o.: Christie’s New York, New York; International Print Center New York (IPCNY), New York; Spazio Morris, Milan; Edinburgh Printmakers, Edinburgh; Charles Bank Gallery, New York; Chelsea Museum of Art, New York; Chashama Gallery, New York; Syndicat Potentiel, Strasbourg; La Chaufferie, Strasbourg; Supermarket, Stockholm.

In 2007 and 2008, I was invited to take part in an artist-run independent program, the London-based New International School held at Treignac Projet in central France.  In 2009, two of my photographs were purchased by the City of Strasbourg for their public collection. That same year, I also took part in the Salon de Montrouge, a contemporary art salon/creation prize in France.  In 2010, I enjoyed a three-month residency at the Can Factory in Brooklyn, NY, which was followed in 2012 by a five-month residency at LMCC (Lower Manhattan Cultural Council) in Manhattan, NY. In 2011 and 2012, I was invited to present my work on three separate occasions at The New School - Parsons School of Design in New York. In 2012, Spazio Morris, an art center based in Milan, Italy, invited me for a solo exhibition in conjunction with Artissima. Since 2013, I have been a part of the Viewing Program at the Drawing Center, and I have been represented by Fortress To Solitude, both in New York.
