Noémie Goudal : The Geometrical Determination of the Sunrise

Noémie Goudal: Observatoire VI, 2013-14, © Noémie Goudal

Exhibition, Foam, Amsterdam, Netherlands, until 23 August
As one of the great talents of a new generation of French photographers, in recent years Noémie Goudal has developed a distinctive visual language. By using a mixture of photographs, film, and installation, she examines the visual and spatial perception of two- and three-dimensional relationships within the image, combining layered photographs of serene, pure, mysterious landscapes with (elements of) modernistic architecture that have an archaic quality. The landscapes act as a kind of theatrical setting and are characterised by a surreal aesthetic caused in part by spatial interventions within the sites where the photographic works are produced.
