Thomas Gosset

Thomas Gosset (1982), is a self-taught artist born in Bordeaux.

Initially inspired by "Les Récréations photographiques" of end of the 19th century and the Avant-gardes of the 20th century, he reinterpreted them a century later in order to offer a contemporary surrealist and subversive photography.

 

Gosset discovered the fragility of his practice after the theft and the destruction of all his negatives, drawings and notebooks in Paris in 2013. And deciding then to free himself completely from his previous work by focusing his research on the deep meaning of the image and its genesis, leading him to the very heart of the photosensitive matter. The result is a pictorial, chaotic photography with a tragic beauty in which tattered bodies rub with faceless souls. These figures bear the irreversible scars he inflicts on his negatives, by mutilating or recomposing them.
