Conference and seminar
CLAUD INE HUNAULT
Christophe Beauregard (artist)
and David Bernard (psychoanalyst)
This seminar is a dialogue between artist and photographer Christophe Beauregard and psychoanalyst David Bernard.
The focus will be on the making of images in the artist’s practice, and the interplay of codes and photographic standards. The psychoanalyst will analyze the forces at work around the photographer’s favorite themes: masks and portraiture, gender and identity, childhood, social and aesthetic norms.
CHRISTOPHE BEAUREGARD, born in 1966, is a Parisian photographer and artist (represented by Ségolène Brossette Galerie). After studying English literature, he met Sam Francs in 1989, which prompted him to enter the Beaux-arts de Tours, from which he graduated (1992), and to take up photography. From 1996 onwards, he produced portraits of celebrities for the press and advertising agencies (Le Monde, Libération, Les In-rocks, from Dior to Berluti). His photographs explore the human body in its social and intimate dimensions, childhood, norms, gender, and our relationship to identity and alterity. Christophe Beauregard teaches photo graphics at the Paris College of Art and the Ecole des arts de la Sorbonne, and artistic production at ESA.
DAVID BERNARD practices psychoanalysis in Rennes and is MOF in Psychopathology at Rennes 2. A member of the Ecole de psychanalyse des Forums du champ lacanien, he is also the author of “Lacan et la honte”, and “La différence du sexe”, published by Éditions Nouvelles du Champ lacanien.
