Eric Baudelaire

Through film, photography and various re-editing systems, Eric Baudelaire (born in Salt Lake City in 1973), questions the relation between image and event, while linking contemporary art and cinema venues together. Some describe him as a surveyor of the documentary image, where he thwarts both its economy and its geo-politics.  By rekindling unfinished scenarios and events leaving murky traces, he offers us tools for thinking as much about the incarnation of History as about its ghosts. His work has been shown in solo exhibitions at the Witte de With, Rotterdam, at Bétonsalon, Paris, at the Kunsthall Bergen, at the Beirut Art Center, Beirut, at Gasworks, London, at the Synagogue de Delme and at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. His feature films L’Anabase de May et Fusako Shigenobu, Masao Adachi, et 27 années sans images (2011), The Ugly One (2013) and Lettres à Max (2014) have been selected at many festivals.
