The "Corps à Corps" series is a photographic endeavor which offers a fragmented and
dynamic take on the female body. Indeed, this work hinges on the juxtaposition of body
fragments and darkness. These fragments, barely visible, make up the exposed side of this
particular geography while the rising darkness slowly turns into an absence of detail.
This dark part encourages us to reconsider the whole artwork as a new space where
imagination and emotion are at the very heart of female mystery.
Xavier Blondeau learned to use the capacity of photography to remove our shortcomings that block the expression of the urgent imagination by realizing his vision and ideas into the form of powerful artworks. Despite the remoteness of his many relations with photography in the past, their lyric and personally charged paths continue to cross and intersect.
While travelling through vast desertic places, Xavier Blondeau has been questionning the place of individuals in their environment. Since 2009 and apart from his activity as a teacher and a researcher, Xavier Blondeau has focused his photographic work on the individual. It is presented and structured in photographic series and aims at addressing that question very closely. Since 2011, he has been very active and present in many collective exhibitions and fairs. His work is about intimacy being revealed as his various photographic series unfold.
