« The Colour of the Ocean »
Lola Reboud was born in 1982 in Marseille. She studied at the Beaux Arts de Paris Cergy, and then at the National School of Decorative Arts in Paris. She currently lives in Paris.
The encounter between an individual in relation to the place where she lives and her relationship to the climate are the starting points of Lola’s work. By mixing photographic wandering with a concern for documentary precision, at the edge of current events, she tells stories where geography is as important as the subject. The common thread is the relationship we maintain with the climate.
Her recent projects initiate conversations between geographers and designers. These collaborations are put into form in different media: textiles, wallpaper, posters and projections. In exhibition spaces, they take the form of in situ installations. As a photographer, she paces the boat at fixed times— from Bizerte (Tunisia) to Marseille (France)— cameras slung over her shoulder, to carry out a project called “The Colour of the Ocean”.
Lola’s work is regularly exhibited in France and abroad, including CentQuatre— Jeune Création, Photo Levallois festival, Paris Photo, Galerie du jour agnès b., Alliance Française Espace Dupon, Nooderlicht photofestival, Photaumnales de Beauvais, la Box, Marseille Provence 2013—Capital of Culture, Kyotographie Kg+,
and recently at the CCO Art Center— Osaka. In 2013 she was awarded the C.N.A.P. documentary photography grant for Climates II, a project currently being realized in Japan.
