Biography of Aurélien Bergot

The artistic approach of photographer Aurélien Bergot hinges on the notions of limits and power. He is interested in the way that the dominant forces model their environment with a view to cohabiting or, on the contrary, excluding.

Displaying a head-on, descriptive and formal documentary aesthetic, his work attempts to create a sort of directory of the symbols, architecture and conditions of power, as shown in his series of photographs exploring Champs Dollon Prison (Prison, 2011) or the series entitled Nations (2008). The latter consists of images of the enclosures of certain permanent missions in the city’s Nations district, showing how these institutions assert themselves in countries that are not their own while at the same time shunning the outside world.
