Noémie Goudal – The Geometrical Determination of the Sunrise

Noémie Goudal – The Geometrical Determination of the Sunrise


Foam presents the first solo museum exhibition by Noémie Goudal (Paris, 1984). As one of the great talents of a new generation of French photographers, in recent years she has developed a distinctive visual language with which she is uniquely positioned within the field of contemporary photography.

By using a mixture of photography, film and installation she examines the visual and spatial perception of two- and three-dimensional relationships within the image. She combines her layered photographs of serene, pure, mysterious landscapes with (elements of) modernistic architecture that have an archaic quality. The landscapes act as a kind of theatrical setting and are characterized by a surreal aesthetic caused in part by spatial interventions within the sites where the photographic works are produced. The resulting works evoke a sense of alienation and tension due to the incongruous spatial perspectives within the image that, nevertheless, only subtly reveal themselves.
