Bernard Faucon True Fiction
YUAN Space is proud to present French photographer Bernard Faucon, pioneer of ‘Staging Photography’, with his first exhibition in Mainland China from 2 June to 15 September. This exhibition also marks the inauguration of YUAN Space itself. About 60 of Faucon’s works will be unveiled to the Chinese public for the first time. Myriam Kryger, confidant of the photographer, and Mr. Gu Zhen, renowned critic of photography, are the curators of this exhibition.
The exhibition covers Faucon’s four most significant series: Summer Camp, The probable evolution of time, and Golden rooms, allowing the viewer to perceive the unique visual tension created by his ‘fabricated fictions’ style. Subtler features, such as the delicate color, created by the unique way in which the film is developed, are also shown throughout the exhibition.
About the artist
In 1976, Bernard Faucon was a student of philosophy starting his creative path with a camera given by his grandmother. He bought used mannequins from the store, repaired them and staged a game scenario from his childhood memories.
After completing the series of photographs, Faucon disposed all of the props. In 1995, his foresight about the hegemony of digital technology in photography, pushed him to put an end to his career in conceptual photography, and turned to poetry and novel as media of expression of his inner world.
