Galerie Eric Mouchet opens with exhibition of photographs by Matthieu Gafsou
Matthieu Gafsou, La Chaux-de-Fonds, 2009 - 2012.

PARIS.- Galerie Eric Mouchet located on 45 rue Jacob, Paris 6e opened its doors on Saturday 18 October 2014 with an exhibition of works by Matthieu Gafsou, “La Chaux-de-Fonds”.

Born in 1981, Matthieu Gafsou is a Swiss photographer working in series. His sharp eye captures and unveils both the beauty and the uglyness of his landscapes and portraits. Close to drawings, the photographs suspend time and they color its subjects with an oneiric touch.

Started in 2009, the “La Chaux-de-Fonds” series was the fruit of his time as artist in residence invited by the Swiss town in the Jura where Le Corbusier was born. Wandering aimlessly in the streets of La Chaux-de-Fonds, Matthieu Gafsou shot highly constructed images, sometimes funny, always bizarre. Photographs in which the disturbing strangeness resist to his fresh and perceptive eye.

In 2012, Eric Mouchet, an expert on Le Corbusier’s drawing works, discovered Matthieu Gafsou’s photos during the exhibition L’Expérience de la ville at the Musée des Beaux Arts of La Chaux-de-Fonds.

For its inaugural exhibition, Galerie Eric Mouchet shows “La Chaux-de-Fonds” by Matthieu Gafsou with the participation of Galerie C in Neuchâtel.

Supported by a high level of quality and expertise, Galerie Eric Mouchet displays an eclectic and demanding programme, under the influence of its founder Eric Mouchet, an expert in graphic arts for the Appeal Court of Paris and a specialist of Le Corbusier’s drawing work.

Collector of international artists of the 70s-80s and young emergent artists, Eric Mouchet made the jump in 2014 to bring together his passion for contemporary art and his expertise while opening his gallery, 45 rue Jacob, Paris 6th.

Located in the historical cultural centre of Paris, Galerie Eric Mouchet shows real individuality and contributes to the opening of Saint-Germain-des-Prés to contemporary art.
