Jean-Luc Moulène, Il était une fois

Jean-Luc Moulène - Once upon a time

Tax included

Whether it is photographic, filmic or visual art, Jean-Luc Moulène uses his practice to study the natural and cultural phenomenons that surround him.


As a polymorphic artist and a key figure of the art scene, Jean-Luc Moulène considers photography as a study object of natural and cultural phenomena, as they were defined by our contemporary and post-industrial society.

“The idea of a work stoppage is a good metaphor when it comes to talking about what I do: I stop things, I concretize the image.” Il était une fois is the last volume of the trilogy about the artist, that was published on the occasion of three important exhibitions, in France, in Germany and in Rome during spring 2015 at the Villa Médicis.

In this prestigious setting, the exhibition that presents Jean-Luc Moulène’s work from 1977 to 2015 enhances the relationship between the past and more contemporary work.

Through his text, Eric Chassey, director of the Villa Médicis, presents us the exhibited art pieces and invites us to discover their meaning and scope.

Il était une fois doesn’t offer us an impersonal story but the possibility of change.
