Matthieu Bourel



Matthieu Bourel collects old photos of actors, celebrities or pictures of magazines to make surreal images and animated GIFs. “I like to evoke a fake history or inspire nostalgia for a period in time that never truly existed. The obsession of collecting disparate images from books, old magazines and other found material becomes as much a part of the emerging image as the mark-making… A piece often becomes about the search and desire to combine those emergent narrative symbols that seem charged with a familiar yet distant emotion.
