François-Xavier Gbré

François-Xavier Gbré

In touch with time and geography, his work summons the language of architecture as a witness of memory and social changes. From colonial vestiges to landscapes redefined by current events, he explores territories and revisits history. This constant dialogue with his environment leads him to use different scales and modes of exhibitions, whether in the presentation of detailed installations, linked to a real investigation of the territory, or in the use of the architecture itself to make photography resonate in a physical relation to the viewer or the public space.

A selection of exhibitions includes; Chine Afrique (Centre Pompidou, Paris, 2020), Sogno d'Oltremare (Museo MAN, Italy, 2019), Afriques Capitales (La Villette, Paris, 2018), Landscape Photography Today (Denver Art Museum, Usa, 2018), Recent Histories (The Walther Collection, Neu-Ulm, Allemagne, 2017), The Past is a Foreign Country (Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery, Haverford College, Usa, 2015), Fragments (Galerie Cécile Fakhoury, Ivory Coast, 2015), Abroad (Art Twenty One, Nigeria, 2015). His works are part of the collections of Centre Pompidou (France), Smithsonian Institution (Washington, Usa), Tate Modern (London, UK), Queensland Gallery of Modern Art (Brisbane, Australia), Walther Collection (Germany/USA), Philadelphia Museum of Art (Usa) among others
