Warren by Noémie Goudal
in recent years, Noemie Goudal's practice has predominantly focused on photographic images resulting from ‘volumique conceptions’; sculptures and installations that are carefully connected to specific spaces before being photographed. The fabrication is essential to her practice, however, the act of taking the picture transforms the object and consequently the image becomes the object itself. Often her use of devices such as large scale paper backdrops, juxtaposed with a landscape invite the viewer to enter the space as well as partaking within the narrative of a ‘make-believe’ environment. Through the process of building sets that come to life within found locations, Goudal produces versatile spheres, which offer new perspectives to the photographic canvas.

Noémie was one of the three Land Securities Studio winners in 2010.
The Land Securities Studio Award was established with ArtSource in 2007 and every year helps three artists graduating from their MA fine art course from The Royal Academy, The Royal College of Art and The Slade School of Fine Art by providing them with a studio for one year. She also received support through using various Land Securities properties as backdrops for her photographs. The artwork “warren” was photographed at Arundel Great Court.
