HSBC: Cerise Doucède et Noémie Goudal
The Prix HSBC pour la photographie supports little-known professional artists by helping them to promote their work. Each year, the Prix HSBC sponsors two young contemporary photographers striving to capture the real world on film. There are no prerequisites as to age or nationality.
The 2013 selection was overseen by Emmanuelle de l'Ecotais, who selected 10 finalists from the 780 submissions received, compared to 500 last year.
Cerise Doucède lives and works in Toulon, France.
“My photographs are the theatre of my fantasies, revealing the intimacy of my own history,” she says. “They correspond to my world, the glimpse beyond the real. Sometimes they are the final step in days-long reflection that stays with me until I find the solution.
Noémie Goudal was born in Paris. She lives and works in London.
Emmanuelle de l’Ecotais wrote of her work: “Goudal builds installations in open and closed spaces using industrial materials (plastic, paper, cardboard, fabric) or photographs printed on sheets which she hangs throughout the space. She transforms caves, abandoned factories and forests into strange stages where absurd scenes are performed.”
Their work will be on display in Paris starting May 16, 2013, at the Galerie Seine 51, followed by a monograph published by Actes Sud.
