Biography

Was born in 1963. He lives and works in Paris.

Jean-Pierre Attal presents to us a serie of photographic accumulations carried out in Paris. Since 2000, he works on a representation of urban society. In this social archaeology, the artist first of all demystifies places of power. He translates the co-existence of economic exchanges and the bodies at their services, bodies which are given an imaginary and friendly space and which find in these “cells”, places in which to exert their singularity, if not their identity.

His mark on our time is linked to transcodings which he likes to steer starting from scenes of urban life and which we see appearing in his “elementary particles”, i.e. his images of crowds rendered in bar codes, a symbol of humanity on the roads to commercialization.
