The Japonisia series is a new series on the representation of the female body...
It is an exclusivity which is presented for the first time.
Xavier Blondeau's work is exhibited in France and abroad. He has received numerous international awards.
"Xavier Blondeau's photographs are like enigmas. The bodies are fragmented, blurred, they reveal or hide themselves, play with what we know about them to tell something else. But to tell what? First of all, impressions [...] the fusional abandonment of a figure in its milky or fetal environment. What really remains of the body is the eroticism of this photographed skin, yet with great modesty, like a caress, delicate as a whisper. By becoming pure form, pure image composition, its surface expresses the invisible that animates it, but refuses to name it. It is content to be a quest for the gaze, this quest for the gaze as metamorphosis, when the form becomes a new space, a new body.
