  • About the Artist

Born in 1986, Laure Ledoux lives and works in Paris.

She first studied at the École Supérieure d'Art et Céramique de Tarbes and graduated from the École Européenne Supérieure de l'Image de Poitiers in 2008 and from the École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie d'Arles in 2012.

Her work is based on the photographic image and unfolds with the portrait in a questioning of the surpassing of oneself and the resistance of the bodies.

She regularly calls on athletes or people who push the limits of the body.

During a state of in-between, post-effort, the body put in presence is re-interrogated and proposes us another space to invent, to conquer.

The questioning of the body, the face and its re-appropriation by going beyond the pain, transcending it is accompanied by a questioning of the virile body and its positioning.

Laure makes portraits and gives to see faces, bodies, conquests, utopias and pushes us to re-interrogate ourselves on the standards.

Her relationship to photography is tactile and linked to the material in all the stages of construction of the image.

Laure questions the notions of instrospection and contemplation through moments of confusion and proposes to free oneself from the codes of representation.

Her work has been awarded prizes such as the Impulsion Grant from the city of Rouen, the Grant for Creation from the Conseil Général des Hauts-de-France, among others.

Laure has been invited in residence at the Centre Art et Photographie de Lectoure in 2016/2017, at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris in 2014/2015, at the University of Haute Alsace and the Kunsthalle de Mulhouse as well as at the Centre d'art contemporain de Pontmain in 2014.

Her presence in other more or less atypical places of creation such as high schools, colleges or prisons have allowed her to create with the young people she meets in these institutions.

Since 2014 when Laure discovered the ancient process of wet collodion, her research is more precisely related to this technique and its detour.

Her current residency at the Capsule (Le Bourget) allows her to experiment with all of this.
