Seoul – Shindorim Dong

Stéphane Couturier

Date : 2002

Medium : Photography

Size : 123 x 225 cm

Without endorsing or deploring the urban environment we live in, Couturier's images are designed to challenge our perception. By questioning the presence of objects, their use and destiny, the artist invites us to take a fresh look at the order of things: the proliferation of signs, confrontation of plans, breaking down of the hierarchy of subjects and transforming the heterogeneity.

Stéphane Couturier conceives the urban fabric as work in progress – ever changing and inexorably problematic. In this way, he turns one of the basic functions of photography upside down – capturing the transitory and temporary in a stable and secure image.
