Louis-Cyprien Rials

In presence of the Artist and Curator Aurélie Faure

Born in 1981, Louis-Cyprien Rials (winner of the 2017 Sam Art Projects Prize) studied theater in France before discovering photography in Japan, where he lived for a few years. Besides his photographic researches, he works on the mineral and on the relation humans have with « imaged rocks », realising big photographic prints of landscapes made of rocks, that humans like to associate with other forms, leading to pareidolia phenomena.
