Stéphane Couturier

Solo Show, Galerie Christophe Guye, Zurich (CH), 8th feb 2021 - 30th April 2021

Christophe Guye Galerie is thrilled to announce Stéphane Couturier’s second solo exhibition at the gallery. The exhibition shows works from three different series – ‘Alger’, ‘Sète’ and ‘Les Nouveaux Constructeurs’ – which all have a certain shifting/interwoven quality that allows the eye to lose itself and wander.


The photographic work of Stéphane Couturier combines a documentary approach with a complex treatment of the composition. On the one hand, he recomposes images by combining them in new ways. On the other hand, he superimposes two or more images and merges two layers of reality, which creates compositions that open up a new space-time. Stéphane Couturier thus questions the allegedly objective nature of the photographic medium: the image becomes a material. From this material, a machine to construct a combination of shapes which continuously updates the recorded reality is born.
