Vincent Fournier is a French artist whose work explores, with photographs and mixed media, the various mythologies of the Future: the space adventure, utopian architectures, artificial intelligence, the transformation of life. His works are part of several collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET) and the Baccarat Hotel Collection in New York, the Mast Foundation in Bologna, the Science Gallery in Dublin and in France the Pompidou Center, the LVMH collection, the Dragonfly collection of the Domaine des Etangs, the Bullukian Foundation in Lyon among others.
“My work is freely inspired by the dream and mystery side that the scientific and technological utopias echoes in the collective imagination. With the Space Project, I have voluntarily mixed a historic and documentary vision of the spatial adventure with staged situations fed by the cinema and my childhood memories. Thus, these mythical places of the space exploration become film sets where Jacques Tati would meet with Jules Verne or Stanley Kubrick. I photographed both the past and the future of space exploration between 2007 and now, from the space race in the 1960s to the NASA SLS launch vehicle expected to go to Mars”, explains the artist.
