Romaric Tisserand (b.1974)
Romaric Tisserand is a conceptual artist whose practice is focused on new perspectives on contemporary photography, from the object to the liquid image, challenging its reproducibility from new digital practices in a changing world.
Working with archives, movie stills or found negatives, he is challenging fiction and documents using large film processes to produce long-term documentary projects such as (Data Center) or fictive NASA archives (Apollo 21) and (The Fallen Object).
He is taking part with La Fabrique du Regard/LE BAL into educational programs and photographic publishing projects with colleges in the great Paris, from history to practice. He has founded an hybrid gallery for performance and photographic projects in Paris, MoMO Galerie and has created an online photographic funds “AAnonymes, the search of the deliberated accident” (www.AAnonymes.org) and a collaborative publishing project (neva-zealand.tumblr.com). MoMO Projects lead him to participate to gallery show (3360 TIMES from M to O) at Mfc2 Michele Didier or making pubic performance (If I was a rich man) with Family Business gallery from artist Maurizio Cattelan at Palais de tokyo.
He has coordinated a series of non-western and emerging photography exhibitions, as well as some from established artists: from the Lise Sarfati’s at the Villa Medicis in Roma (2009) to the Samuel Fosso’s production at the Rencontres d’Arles (2008) or at Walther Collection (2014).
His artworks have been exhibited in various institutions as Fototeca de Cuba, Maison Europèenne de la Photographie, Cinémathèque Française, Mois de la Photo, National Center of Spatial Studies (CNES).
