Stéphane Couturier

Born in France in 1957. Lives and works in Paris. Recent exhibitions include: Forum für Fotografie Köln; Sungkok Art Museum, Seoul; Centre d’art contemporain de Pontmain; Les Filles du Calvaire, Paris.

Looking for the vestiges of modernization left on the landscape, Stéphane Couturier focuses on dense urban areas (Paris 1995-96, Berlin 1996, Dresden 1997,Moscow 1999, Seoul 2000, Peking 2001, San Diego and Tijuana 2002…) that usually possess a strong architectural and cultural history, and  on sites of transformation ( urban archeology series ).

The large –scale colour prints challenge the viewer to identify layers of history, the meaning of architecture as monument,and the impact of urban sprawl on the surrounding natural environment.

The multi panel works further question reality itself, where the viewer cannot discerne whether the architecture represented is actual or existing only within the artwork .

 

Stéphane Couturier’s photography have been exhibited in numerous European Museums and belong to several Museum collections, and private Foundations, including the FNAC, FRAC Alsace, FRAC Auvergne, the National Gallery of Canada, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art , the Cleveland Art Museum, Musée de l’Elysée-Lausanne
