Noémie Goudal

Du 20 au 22 September 2019

For Shangai Photofairs 2019, we want to submit a booth constructed as a solo show of Noémie Goudal.

Noémie Goudal’s work brings real and theoretical geographies into coexistence, creating a space between physical reality and its mental representation. Goudal’s photographs document staged interventions that induce scepticism and complicity in equal measure, announcing themselves as fictitious yet compelling a suspension of disbelief.

Goudal’s oeuvre explores our instinctive need to explicate our surroundings in a unifying theory, and her inquiry resides in the distance between observation and interpretation. Goudal’s recent work reimagines moments of historical scientific discovery relating to our search for a sense of place: her last series, Stations, fixated on the sky as a space into which prevailing philosophical thought was projected until the Copernican Revolution. For Telluris, the artist progresses her investigation from the sky to the earth itself.
