Jean-Michel Fauquet
L’oeil du signe

Past: March 26 → May 25, 2014

Jean-Michel Fauquet’s work involves drawing, painting and sculpture, ultimately resulting in photographs reminiscent of engravings.

Most of the work takes place in a studio, where the subject, made of low-grade materials, is a pretext that conjures up a narrative in the mind of the viewer, who elaborates a story using his own memory and imagination. Fauquet’s way of approaching light and shapes is very personal. His printing methods and his use of special paper and unusual media also make him something of an alchemist. His works have been widely exhibited in France and abroad, in particular at the Rencontres photographiques d’Arles in 2013. The show at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie features about 80 works.
