FLORENCE CHEVALLIER

With a background in theatre, Florence Chevallier is the co-founder of the group Noir Limite with Yves Trémorin (whose work is also in OSMOSCOSMOS) and Jean-Claude Bélégou. They explore the limits of the photographable, marked by an intense approach to the body and existence – intimacy, interiority, sensation, the forbidden and even the sacred. Their first exhibition, Corps à Corps in 1987, was immediately censored. The prints shown in OSMOSCOSMOS come from the series Corps autoportraits that Chevallier made previously, between 1980 and 1985. All of her work has arisen, she explains, “from that necessity to connect a personal story (with one’s shortcomings, myths, hopes and constant transformations) and the exterior world, that unalterable source that defies our limits when we truly look at it.”
