Edouard Decam, 1978, is a French artist living and working between Bordeaux, Barcelona and Argut-Dessus. Architect graduated from the School of Architecture and Landscape of Bordeaux.
Edouard Decam’s practice focuses on architecture, considering it as a mirror of the landscape. He observes the influences of his imprint and the links he weaves with his environment. His approach identifies boundaries that constitute territories: contact zones. “Transforming research into an first-hand exploration of the territory, Edouard Decam builds a methodology of the experience in which the journey is linked to a transient rooting in those places where architecture is the essential part of an environment that can not be understood without it and where time is needed to understand space. ” Sonia Fernandez Paz, curator.
