Seems fitting to have the amusingly gruesome severed limbs and liminal figures of Brice Chatenoud escorting us into the month of October.
Chatenoud received a master's degree of management and finance from a Parisian university. He was confronted with an environment that lacked curiosity and sensibility. He then quickly decided to devote himself entirely to what had been his driving passion since his teenage years, photography.
Physical self-obsession and loss of identity seem to play out over and over in his work: blurred self, dismembered limbs, genitals, but no arms of legs with which to hold another partner.
His work seems to be a warning. As he says in his statement: "Well, it's true that the end of the world did not take place in December 2012, but it is already included in most of my work."
