Shortlisted · Unveil’d Photobook Award 2018
In 2017 Julie Hascoët was invited to participate in a one-year residency by Carré d’Art in the city of Chartres de Bretagne. Benefiting from an annual programme with cartography as its central focus, and as part of a residency intended to highlight the local territory, Julie Hascoët’s project has extended these two themes by adding a nomadic dimension. Driven by a desire to shift the boundaries of the city of Chartres de Bretagne and give it a new form, she expanded her area of research to include four of its twin cities: Hassmersheim in Germany, Lwowek in Poland, Calarasi in Romania and Saint-Anthème in Puy-de-Dôme. From one season to the next, from one wander to another, she has revived the principles of twin cities with an entirely new, visual, perspective.
Julie Hascöet is a french visual artist. Her photographic work questions the notions of territory, entropy and transformation, cartography, and she extends the practice of photography to a more general research on installation, printed matter and self-publishing. She is also the co-founder of ZINES OF THE ZONE, a traveling collection of self-published photobooks and zines. Among this project, she curates book-exhibitions and DIY-related events (concerts, talks, projections). She just joined Myop photo agency.
