Christophe Goussard is represented by Agence VU ‘
Born in 1970 in Blaye, lives in Bordeaux. Author artist, his position is not journalistic. He lends his gaze to all spaces rich in human experience and multiplies the registers. Attracted by the greatest contrasts, he turns to open and remote spaces on residences with long courts as well as closed and very close environments.
From one project to another, the human who was until then the central object of his research, is fading. The figure is now only required as a presence in the landscape and places full of history.
He has published several books at Filigranes, including the last Goodbye to the river with Christophe Dabitch in 2016. It is distributed by the agency VU ‘.
