Valérie Belin

Text by Quentin Bajac, Dork Zabunyan, Étienne Hatt.

"Crowned Heads #1" (2009) is reproduced from from 'Valérie Belin.'A meticulous survey of French photographer Valérie Belin's stunning series from Magicians, Bouquets and Lido to Brides, Bob, and Black Eyed Susan and continuing up to recent work including Super Models and All Stars.
French photographer Valérie Belin (born 1964) explores matter, the body, the living and the artificial—and the representations of all of these fraught categories—in a body of uncanny photographic work characterized by a fascination with light, detail and surface texture. Valérie Belin presents a survey of the artist’s work since 2007, including her most recent series, All Star, a series of portraits of ghostly female figures that cut a vague, melancholy presence against cheery backgrounds derived from comic books. Coming on the heels of the photographer’s celebrated retrospective at the Centre Pompidou, this volume includes a text by Quentin Bajac, Curator of Photography at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and offers an immersion into Belin’s rare and unusual body of work that presents a photography of confusion and absence, where backgrounds are brought forward in front of their ostensible subjects and models and mannequins become indistinguishable.

FROM THE BOOK
"series by series, Belin is building a non-exhaustive inventory of the world, which today is governed by the dictatorship of the gaze: a world in which subjects – be they animated beings or objects – exist only for and through the other person’s gaze."
– Quentin Bajac

"Super Girl" (2016) is reproduced from Valérie Belin, launching tonight at Albertine. MoMA curator Quentin Bajac, who will appear in conversation with Belin, writes, "Whereas the American photographer and an important figure for her, Richard Avedon, could still affirm in the 1980s that photography, and his own pictures in particular, were 'readings of the surface,' simple captures of the external envelope of beings, Belin seems to have come to the conclusion that not even that is possible now." continue to blog
