Aurore Bagarry

This series of seventy six prints composes a photographic inventory of the glaciers of the Mont Blanc massif in France conducted from 2012 to 2017 by Aurore Bagarry.
This young photographer, a graduate of the Gobelins and the Arles School of Photography, has carried out a descriptive and poetic project to survey the intricacies and singularities of Alpine glaciers.
These images, infused with a documentary style, reflect by its aesthetic concerns, a rereading of the photographs of explorations of the nineteenth century.
It is an act that reveals the beauty and fragility of these places and sounds the alarm on the disappearance that threatens them.

Roches, Aurore Bagarry’s new photographic project, revolves around research on water as an imprint on the landscape and on the notion of a natural border. Her field of investigation goes from the French northern shores to those of the south of England which face each other. The artist continues his approach of photographic atlas started with the series Glaciers and offers us a personal reading of the landscapes of La Manche through an inventory of the forms resulting from the slow erosion of the coastline.

Roches received the support of the Drac Bretagne (Aide Individuelle à la Création) in 2017 and that of the art center GwinZegal, Guingamp in 2019.

Biography

French photographer and video artist, born in 1982 in Le Mans, France, Aurore Bagarry graduated in 2004 from the Gobelins School, Paris, and in 2008 from the National School of Photography in Arles with commendations
Her work revolves around research on water as a form and as an imprint on a landscape and on the notion of natural borders. How photography, by its transparent nature, can make the variations in water sensitive, suggest its complexity? By the logic of photographic atlas and the practice of walking, she offers a personal reading of the landscape with an inventory of the forms of water, sometimes fragile although monumental (Glaçiers 2012-2018) or the imperceptible fruit of a slow erosion (Roches 2016-2020).

Winner in 2020 of the Regards sur le Grand Paris #4 commissioned by the CNAP and the Ateliers Médicis, Aurore Bagarry discovers the ancient oceans and reveals the forms of water that have shaped the Parisian basin through waves of sedimentation, to the point of structuring our forms of life and our gaze through the ages.
