Louise Crawford (Scotland) and Stéphan Guéneau (France) work on large format analogue photography (4X5), 16mm films and installations. They live in Paris and Berlin.
Louise Crawford studied at Falmouth School of Art in England followed by a postgraduate year at the Düsseldorf Kunstakademie. Stéphan Guéneau studied in l’École des Beaux-Arts de Rouen in France and in the Hochschule der Künste in Berlin. They are both Le Fresnoy — Studio national des arts contemporains alumni. They have been collaborating since 2000. Recurrent themes throughout their work are an interest in contemporary history and its impact on urban space and landscape, film — and the film noir aesthetic —, the archive as document/as artwork, the half-tone image and its relationship to history, archiving and cataloging.
A selection of their shows include: Shutter Hub, ARB Cambridge University, Cambridge; La Nuit Blanche, Paris; Monat der Fotografie Off, Berlin; Plateforms Project Independent Art Fair, Athens; Glasgow International Biennale, Glasgow; VVV Galerie, Buenos Aires.

cahier n°5


Louise Crawford and Stéphan Guéneau are a franco-british duo. Their practice examines how personal and collective history and memory is represented by shifting between the realities they observe (using film, photography and other media) and the archival material they appropriate. This sampling and staging of the past to decode the present exposes at times the hidden processes of production, creating a visual database; factual, fragmentary and non-exhaustive.
