Noemie Goudal

Awarded RPS Honorary Fellowship 2023 in recognition of a significant personal achievement in photography.

Noémie Goudal’s practice involves the construction of ambitious staged, illusionistic installations within the landscape, documented using film, photography and performances. Goudal’s interventions are under pinned by rigorous research examining the intersection of ecology and anthropology, interrogating the limitations of theoretical conceptions of the natural world. Her current research asks the viewer to assume a macro perspective, considering the evolution of the landscape, and how we situate ourselves within it, as a continually evolving construct.

Goudal’s recent solo exhibitions include Les Rencontres de la Photographies d’Arles, FR (2022); Vitrine FRAC Ile de France, Paris, FR (2022); Centre d’Art Le Grand Café, Saint-Nazaire, FR (2021); Musée Delacroix – Louvre, Paris, France (2021); Musée des Beaux Arts du Le Locle, Le Locle, CHE (2019); The Finnish Museum of Photography, Helsinki, FIN (2018); The Hayward Gallery, London, UK (2017); Le BAL, Paris, France (2016); The Photographer’s Gallery, London, UK, (2015); The New Art Gallery Walsall, Walsall, UK, (2014).

She has participated in numerous group exhibitions including the Whitechapel Gallery, London, UK (2020); and the Venice Biennale Azerbaijan Pavilion, Venice, IT (2015). Goudal graduated from the Royal College of Art (2010) and works between Paris and London.
