Edouard Decam

Displacement is at the core of my artistic research. Every project is a personal space-time experience, a process in which I identify limits that are actual territories: contact zones.

Architect by training, Edouard Decam lives and works between the Pyrenees mountains and Barcelona.

Edouard Decam has exhibited at le 104 and Espace Electra Paris, Farenheit – Flax Foundation Los Angeles, Matadero Madrid, Hangar Lisboa, French Institute Madrid and Barcelona, was resident in Casa de Velazquez and Matadero, among others. He recently won the LOOP Discover award with his film Volva.

His artistic practice focuses on the relationship that is woven between space and time, through the perspective of art and science. He works on architecture, often in extreme environments, considering it as a mirror of the landscape. He observes and interprets the influence and the links that architecture establishes with its surroundings, in a process of identification of the limits that separate and unite these elements. These limits, suspended in an indeterminate space-time, constitute contact zones, real territories to explore.

The direct confrontation: the journey, the desperation, the slowness, the cold, the goal, is the true « script » of his work. Moving images, long-exposure photographs, sound, found or self- produced elements nourish the installations in which he formalizes this discourse.
