Présentation

France - Born in 1993
Les noirceurs du fleuve rouge

Coline Jourdan is a visual artist and photographer. Fully committed to environmental protection, she questions the codes of representation in photography, taking a particular interest in toxicity, its presence in our environment and its often imperceptible impacts. Les noirceurs du fleuve rouge is a project that starts in the Rio Tinto basin in Spain. The river, polluted by the region’s mining activity, is becoming acidic and is gradually turning red. To bear witness to this ecological disaster, the photographer has augmented the photographic development process by using water from the river itself. The resulting chemical interaction alters the initial image of the landscape, producing blackened images in which fragments of nature attempt to survive.

In collaboration with Fisheye Magazine. Exhibition produced with the support and expertise of Laboratoires Agelia.
