Each year, the municipality of Bièvres invites an artist to exhibit as part of the Fair. After Claudine Doury, Denis Bourges, Olivier Culmann, Isabel Muñoz, Claude and John Batho, Jane Evelyn Atwood, photographer Patrick Tourneboeuf will be the guest of honor of the Fair. Patrick Tourneboeuf will present photos from his Nulle Part, Blow-Up, La Cicatrice and Monumental series.
Born in Paris in 1966, co-founding member of the collective of photographers Tendance Floue, Patrick Tourneboeuf became interested in the commonplaces of urban space in the mid-1990s. With Périphérique, a silent vision of the Parisian boulevard, the beginnings of research on the suspension of time take shape. A work continued in Nowhere, for which he stopped in seaside resorts. This disconcerting observation from a distance builds a critical discourse on the use of leisure. From 2003, he devoted part of his work on fixing the stigmata of History. Three photographic series are attached to the places of construction of a memory: La Cicatrice, in the footsteps of the Berlin Wall, The memory of D-Day, on the landing beaches of Normandy, and Steles, on the war memorials of the Great War. For 20 years, he has brought together a corpus of images produced on heritage under the title Monumental, writing without nostalgia, halfway between documentary and a questioning of the ambiguities of the representation of reality.
