CURRENT/UPCOMING:
Tintamarre, Musée des Impressionnismes, Giverny/FR (14.07-05.11)

Born in 1977 in Brive La Gaillarde, Julien Audebert leaves and works in Paris. His work is present, among others, by the following institutions: Fonds National d’Art Contemporain, Paris; FRAC Auvergne; FRAC Haute-Normandie; FRAC Languedoc-Roussillon; FRAC Pays de La Loire; The Israel Museum, Jerusalem. Exhibitions: Les Jeux funéraires, Art:Concept, Paris; Fort du Taureau, In Extenso, Clermont-Ferrand; In Other Words, NGBK Neue Gesellschaft für Bildende Kunst, Berlin.

Following different processes around photography, installation and text, Julien Audebert puts to the test the crossing of visible and legible. In his “dismantling” works, he produces a single image from multiple film screenshots; creating a panoptic conversion of the original material. Thus, Audebert reveals the mental landscape fleeting any film on account of the effects of its own editing. Here, the continuous regime of representation traditionally offered by photography, as well as its supposed direct contact with reality, ends up revealing astonishing parallels with  the discontinuous regime of  painting. Nowadays, images tend to lose their intrinsic values and be converted into data. Thus, Julien Audebert’s unravelling operates from the viewer or reader’s place, but also from the places where the image itself is constituted. Making more complex the idea of «image», his works rethink by themselves the standards of knowability and practicability. Trying to sound out time’s flaws which are inscribed in History and Subject, the artist manages, rebuilds and reinterprets Cinema, litterature or different documentary sources which finally create their own equations.
