Stations, a collection of work by Noémie Goudal, comprises constructed images that reinvent built and natural environments. Questioning boundaries between truth and fiction, the artist’s unique layering technique results in large-scale, illusory compositions, each one offering surreal and arresting visuals. In one series, monumental structures stand still and brooding bodies of water, whilst in others cut-out clouds hang suspended in expansive landscapes.
Goudal notes: “Curiosity has always been a strong driving force for me, and my creations require me to push myself to achieve something for every separate layer. I love discovering and understanding new things before even considering the actual construction and implementation, which my team works on. Preparing a photography session is like planning an adventure or a small film shoot, and all the organisational requirements this entails gives my life balance.”
The exhibition opens at Fotografiska, Stockholm, on 6 Setptember. Find out more here.
