True to the artist's unconventional outlook, the exhibition is an art experience: the walls of the Studio have been carpeted from floor to ceiling with sheets of images to fully immerse visitors in Mocafico's photographic world. Large-format photos of his contemporary vanitas, images conceived as fascinating tableaux, the pure beauty of which intrigues the eye, are presented on the upper floors.
The exhibition coincides with the publication of the book "Mocafico Numéro, 1999-2016" by Steidl.
Born in 1962 in Switzerland, Mocafico works between Vevey and his studio in Paris. He has collaborated with Numéro magazine for more than 15 years.
His work is shown in London, Munich, Tokyo, and numerous festivals, including Paris Photo, Festival d’Hyères and Rencontres d’Arles.
Steidl has published several studies of his personal work: Venenum (2005), Medusa (2006), Serpens (2007), Movement (2008) and Stilleven (2012).
