Maritima Artist Residency Participants:
Photographer and visual artist, born in 1970, in Rennes. Nicolas Floc’h ‘s installations, photographs, films, sculptures and performances question a period of transition in which flow, disappearance and regeneration play an essential role. Over the past ten years, a work focused on the representation of habitats and the underwater environment has led to a documentary photographic production related to the global changes and the definition of the concept of underwater seascape. From long-term projects, nourished by experiences, scientific researches and encounters, open artworks are born, rooted in reality, where evolutionary processes take the first place.
