Love: Installation artist Noemie Goudal . . .

Paris born, London based Noemie Goudal's uniquely beautiful work caught my conceptual eye a few years ago, and continues to tickle my artistic fancy. So I of course had to share her genius with you! Her photography is rooted firmly in the creation of what many have coined 'conception volumique', a phrase borrowed from design production to refer to site-specific sculptural installations that render unclear whether it is the location, installation, or image that is the artwork itself. Across various photographic series, Goudal frequently works with large scale paper backdrops, juxtaposed closely with the existing landscape and blurring the bounds of the real and the fictional. To put it simply she's created a whole new "look outside the box" artistic technique.
"I wish to offer through my photographs escapes into alternative landscapes where the reconstruction of new lands is made possible. The journey inside the image will invite the viewer to enter the space as well as entering the narrative of a ‘make-believe’, bringing him into the game between fiction and reality in which one can identify the fragility of one’s own desires." - Noemie Goudal
