Edouard Taufenbach

France, Paris Galerie Binome

Edouard Taufenbach (FR, 1987) transforms anonymous photographs and scenes from everyday life into captivating collages. By drastically manipulating and multiplying the photographic composition, the original image is often rendered unrecognisable. Taufenbach's new series, Spéculaire, is composed of silver photographic objects created from archival images of the Sebastien Lifshitz Collection. These original prints, which celebrate hedonism through the free expression of naked bodies, intimate moments or proximity with nature, are multiplied, fragmented and rearranged by the artist, thus adding a new material dimension to the original prints, becoming objects of visual fantasies.
