Introduction

Christian Courrèges (Aix-en-Provence, 1950 ? Paris, 2017). He lived and worked in Paris.

 

Chistian Courrèges specialized in portraits of group members, such as toreros, and took close-up shots of Haitians, prisoners and guards of the Baumettes prison, of French and English magistrates and prelates of Roman curia in cloth.

 

Public space, reminds us Hannah Arendt, is by definition a space of appearance. In every series, the artist isolates the subject from any setting. The image is therefore enterely focused on the individual who is identifiable by an attribute or a costume related to his function or status.

 

However the artist goes beyond appearances and social, he questions the tension between belonging to a group and asserting onself, between authenticity and what is conventionally called the ?social mask?.
