The artist Nicolas Floc’h has been interested for more than 10 years in the artistic representation of underwater environments. A long-time diver, he has embarked on a vast photographic exploration of the submerged landscapes of the French coastline.
Nicolas Floc’h unveils nearly 150 previously unpublished photographs from his expeditions at the crossroads between artistic and scientific research. The exhibition offers another vision of the underwater environment.
The images, in natural light, often in black and white, show the sea as it offers itself to the eye and immerse us in its depths to the point of abstraction. This exhibition reveals the importance of exploring the underwater environment from an artistic point of view, a new representation generating new imaginations.
The works of Nicolas Floc’h present in the Frac collection have been regularly loaned and exhibited since their acquisition in 2013. The Frac Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur and Nicolas Floc’h have continued their collaboration since the artist’s residence in Cassis, around his work on the underwater environment.
