Eric Baudelaire is an artist and a filmmaker. His work, which includes photography and printmaking often presents itself in the form of multipart installations conceived around a main film. Baudelaire’s artistic practice is rooted in a seemingly documentary tradition, which he challenges through extensive research and experimental or participative practices. Between fact and fiction, Baudelaire explores the complex relationship that images entertain with historical and sociological facts and events. His research-based practice has led him to explore very precise political topics such as the Japanese Red Army’s journey to Lebanon, or the unrecognized state of Abkhazia in the Caucasus.
