Benoît Fournier’s Water Memories is a series of photos that represents artistic expression using aqueous nature as its source, touching on the memory of a primordial means of life. These are memories about water in liquid form, as signs of wandering, of daydreaming, of aqueous freedom, elusive. These are forms that exceed the materiality of water. It is a series without a geographical roadmap, but of sensorial memories ordered according to the texture of the liquid, its density and movement.
Benoît Fournier was born in 1981 in Carpentras, France. He holds a Master’s degree in International Buisiness Administration. His studies focused on Latin America and brought him to live in first Mexico and Spain, and now Rio de Janeiro where he has been since 2006.
