the 2017 artist

Sylvain Couzinet-Jacques was the first winner of the Lucy Art Residency selected from almost 200 applications. The runner-ups Klara Källstrom and Thobias Fäldt were also invited to Kavala to present their work during the Lucy Art Residency Talks program.

 Sylvain Couzinet-Jacques (b.1983) is a graduate of the École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Marseille (2010) and the École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie in Arles (2012).  Sylvain Couzinet-Jacques has been developing for several years a reflection halfway between documentary photography and the visual arts around the concept of re-enchantment. The global stakes of the immaterial circulation of data, private property and collective appropriation are the basis of an exploration by the image that takes care of the stigmata of its time. His work has been featured at Le BAL in Paris, Fotofestival Mannheim and more recently at Aperture in New-York. In 2015, he received the inaugural Immersion commission given by the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès. His first book, Eden, made in collaboration with Fred Cave, has been published by Aperture in November 2016.
