Born in Montpellier in 1987, Baptiste Rabichon currently lives and works in Paris. He graduated́ from the Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2014, and was accepted at Le Fresnoy in 2015, from which he graduated with the congratulations of the jury in 2017. He is the winner of the 2017 BMW prize, and then of the 2018 Moly-Sabata/Salon de Montrouge prize. In 2019 and 2020, he is resident at the Cité Internationale des Arts. Baptiste Rabichon is the winner of the Picto/Lab 2021 prize.
In a relationship with images that is as much critical as it is loving, Baptiste Rabichon explores photography in all its forms, tackling both the ancestral methods of photography (photograms, pinhole cameras, cyanotypes) and the tools of modern imagery, which he tries, always with the same jubilation, to push to their limits. Today, the heart of his work consists of the creation of unique photographs, where, through a multitude of stages, digital and silver are intertwined within a single photosensitive medium.
Recently, Baptiste Rabichon has exhibited́ at the Rencontres d'Arles, at the Collection Lambert in Avignon, at the Lianzhou Museum of Photography, at the Pearl Museum in Shanghai, at the CACN in Nîmes, or at Untitled Miami and at OSTUDIO in New York.
In 2020 he created a huge photographic installation for the Paris-Orly International Airport (visible until 2023). He is collected by the Carré d'Art in Nîmes, the Lam in Villeneuve d'Ascq, La Samaritaine in Paris, the BMW Group, the Balnibar Group in Japan and the Li Keran Foundation in Beijing. As part of the Picto/Lab 2021 Prize, he is currently preparing his next exhibition which will be held at the GwinZegal Art Centre.Download artist'CV
