ANTOINE BOUTET

Antoine Boutet lives and works in Paris, even though his recent projects have seen him spend months at a time in China or the remote corners of the Dordogne. The essential part of his work, primarily using techniques of photography, installation, video is based around urban mutations and its resonances on the population in which we the spectator are invited to (re)consider the political implications. His video installations or interventions in the public space are occasions to collaborate with urbanists, researchers and the inhabitants. His previous works, in particular Zone of Initial Dilution (2006), dealing with the urban transformation of the Three Gorges region in China, have been presented and received awards in numerous international festivals, and his latest documentary Le plein pays (2009) where he has filmed a recluse living in a forest for the past 30 years, hewing out underground tunnels and galleries which he decorates with engravings, got a French national release.
