This new monograph brings together Nicolas Floc'h's artistic production of the last twelve years.
Glaz is a Breton word used to describe a colour between green and blue, the colour of water. Since childhood, Nicolas Floc'h has developed a passion for the ocean and devoted his life and work to encapsulating and conveying the infinite riches and aspects of its reality. This voluminous monograph, published after his exhibition at Fonds régional d'art contemporain Bretagne, covers an oeuvre of sculpture, photography, and conceptual works, organised in themes like “Invisible Architecture”, “Productive Structures”, “Natural Habitats”, “Painting”, “Functional”, and “Recycling”. A major part of the book is dedicated to underwater photographs of artificial reefs in France, Portugal, and Japan, as well as specific seascapes taken by Floc'h during a scientific expedition on the Tara Pacific in Japan.
Nicolas Floc'h (born 1970 in Rennes, lives and works in Paris) is involved in many artistic fields. His installations, photographs, sculptures and performances question an era of transition, where flux, disappearance and regeneration play an essential role. As a committed artist, he never stops working from societal, environmental and economic observations, where he imagines possible evolutions. From his long-term projects, fed by travels, meetings and scientific research, are born open works rooted in the real, where collaborative and evolutive processes take the first place.
