Vincent Fournier

Born in Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) in 1970, Vincent Fournier grew up in France on the coast of Brittany. After undergraduate studies in Sociology and a Masters in Visual Arts (Montpellier 1994) he obtained the Diploma of the École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie in Arles in 1997. Vincent Fournier currently lives and works in Paris. 

He is arranging stories as accidents, pending a fall that does not happen, always on the edge of right and wrong, serious or absurd, funny or disturbing, past or future.

Artist statement: “Gradually, scientific and technological utopias have enriched my work. Whether belonging to some past memory, such as Brasilia, or representing some projection of the future, such as the  improved version of the living, these utopias share a common dream. These impossible places enable us to imagine the extreme and the unforeseeable as new starting points. They create a breaking point, opening up the horizon of the multiple.”

His work is represented by a number of galleries and is regularly shown at international art fairs. Vincent Fournier currently lives and works in Paris.
