THE PHOTOGRAPHER

Born in 1954 in Versailles, France, Henri Foucault studies at the Beaux-Arts School of Paris in the sculpture section of Isabelle Waldberg and get his diploma in 1981. Teacher at the National School of Decorative Art of Paris, Henri lives and works in the outskirts of Paris. Sculptor, photographer and videographer, Henri Foucault’s work is built with a singular approach using light to invent new forms of perception. By confronting two opposite practices, the slow build of a volume and the striking speed of the photographic act, emerges the possibility to merge sculpture and photography. Photographing and sculpting, and swinging between these two art forms, is what the works of Henri Foucault is all about.

THE PHOTOGRAPH  

This unique polaroid by Henri Foucault is part of the series “Hors du Corps”. Most polaroids of the series were published in a book, entitled “Hors du Corps” (ed. Filigranes) in 2016. This particular image was not part of the book, which makes it even more unique as it had never been shown anywhere before!

THE PRINT

This polaroid dates from 2014 and was made using FujiFilm’s Instant film together with a red cinema filter which the artist added onto the camera itself before taking the shot. It comes in a white passe-partout.
