Présentation en anglais


Charles Juliet. - In order to master the strokes that you use all the time when creating the matrix, you must have had to repeat them an infinite number of times, and then forget them so that they could become spontaneous rather than controlled...

Fanny Boucher. - I think that there comes a point when the energy needed for the particular gestures no longer comes from above, it's no longer controlled by your brain but comes from your centre, your gut, and moves upwards, radiating through your hands and guiding your movements...

Photogravure, like many other specialist crafts, can only be learnt through repeating the required movements. It's only through regular and consistent practice that one masters the craft and gets to know the material. Practice teaches you to anticipate and understand how the material is going to react and to correct your movements according to the state of the material.
Le maître d'art Fanny Boucher témoigne de sa pratique de l'héliogravure, un procédé photomécanique datant du XIXe siècle qui permet le transfert d'une image photographique sur du cuivre grâce à de la gélatine photosensible. A travers un entretien, des textes et des photographies prises dans son atelier de Meudon, elle présente son savoir-faire et exprime sa volonté de transmettre ses techniques. ©Electre 2021
