Nicolas Floc'h's installations, photographs, films, sculptures and performances question an era of transition in which flux, disappearance and regeneration play an essential role. Over the past ten years, his work has focused on the representation of habitats and the underwater environment, resulting in a documentary photographic production linked to global changes and the definition of the notion of underwater landscape. From long-term projects, nourished by experiments, scientific research and encounters, open works are born, anchored in reality, where evolutionary processes take pride of place.
Nicolas Floc'h's works have been regularly exhibited in France and abroad, notably at the SMAK (Ghent), Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), MAC/VAL (Vitry-sur-Seine), Palais de Tokyo (Paris), FRAC Bretagne (Rennes), FRAC PACA (Marseille), Matucana 100 (Santiago, Chile)... A monograph, Glaz, published during the eponymous exhibition at the FRAC Bretagne, is published in 2018 by Roma Publications, Amsterdam. His works are part of the photographic collections of the CNAP, the Fond Municipal de la Ville de Paris, the FRAC Bretagne, the FRAC PACA, the MAC/VAL, the FRAC Champagne-Ardenne, the FRAC Lorraine, the FRAC Grand-Large-Hauts-de-France and the MALI (Lima, Peru). Nicolas is the winner of the national photographic commission "Flux, a society in movement" 2018 and of the public artistic commission 2019 for Invisible with the Parc national des Calanques, in partnership with the Camargo Foundation. In 2020, he is preparing a triple solo exhibition at the FRAC PACA, the Fondation Carmignac and the Villa Noailles as part of Manifesta 13. He is also developing a long-term project around the colour of water, crossing the seas, oceans and rivers of the world. In 2022, Nicolas Floc'h is resident at the Villa Albertine for its opening.
