Georges Rousse, French photographer and visual artist, has established himself in the world of photography since the 80s.
At nine years old, he received a legendary Brownie Flash from Kodak as a gift. While he is a medical student in Nice, he learned from a professional the shooting and printing techniques, then created his own architectural photography studio.
Inspired by both Land art and the painter Malevitch, Georges Rousse invests buildings, designed an ephemeral graphic work there following the principle of anamorphosis (distortion of an image using an optical system), then the restitution in large format photo.
Georges Rousse has exhibited in Europe, Asia (Japan, Korea, China, Nepal), in the United States, in Quebec, in Latin America… He has also participated in numerous biennials in Paris, Venice or Sidney. He has received the International Center of Photography Prize in 1988 and the Grand Prix National de la Photographie in 1993.
For Planches Contact, Georges Rousse revisits the former Yacht Club of Deauville. Presented at the Point de Vue, two new creations will be visible alongside an original exhibition from a selection of works from the artist’s collection.
“With an unprecedented process in its approach to offer the visitor an astonishing and interesting experience, the installation exterior designed by Georges Rousse on the old Deauville Yacht Club will remain visible. The public will be able to come and observe it, then go see the images.”
