If you’ve seen it all, close your eyes présente des extraits des carnets manuscrits que l’artiste Coco Capitán a réalisés au cours des dix dernières années. Coco Capitán a toujours griffonné ses pensées – partout, tout le temps – souvent sur des bouts de papier qui ont rempli carnet après carnet. De son premier jour à Londres en 2010 jusqu’à aujourd’hui, alors qu’elle parcourt le monde pour des commandes photographiques, ces carnets offrent un aperçu de son processus créatif, libre et instinctif. Ses aphorismes espiègles et ses courts poèmes forment un tableau éclectique avec des touches d’humour et d’ironie. Elle mélange le sérieux et le terre à terre pour ce premier livre consacré à ses écrits, et parle de sujets de société, de moments poétiques ou d’émotions avec beaucoup d’esprit et une écriture manuscrite bien à elle.

Née en Espagne en 1992, Coco Capitán vit et travaille à Londres. Après des études de photographie au London College of Fashion, elle obtient une maîtrise en photographie au Royal College of Art. Elle pratique la photographie, la peinture, la peinture murale, elle écrit, fait des vidéos et des installations. Elle réalise des campagnes de mode pour des grandes maisons et des magazines comme Vogue, Dazed, Gucci, APC et Mulberry. Sa première exposition personnelle dans un musée a eu lieu au Daelim Museum en Corée du Sud (2018). La deuxième se tiendra en mars 2019 à la Maison européenne de la Photographie à Paris.

Seconde édition


If you’ve seen it all, close your eyes” presents extracts from a decade of artist Coco Capitán’s handwritten notebooks. Coco Capitán has always scribbled down her thoughts – everywhere, all the time – often on scraps of paper that have filled notebook after notebook. From her first day in London in 2010 until now, and as she travels the world on photography assignments, Coco Capitán’s writings grant an insight into her free and instinctive creative process. Playful aphorisms and short poems address an array of issues with hints of humour and irony. She combines the serious with the mundane as she shares in her first text-based book social, metaphorical or sentimental moments with her witty tone and distinctive hand.

London-based artist Coco Capitán (born 1992, Spain) earned a BA in Fashion Photography at the London College of Fashion followed by an MA in Photography at the Royal College of Art. She works across a range of genres including photography, painting, mural, text, video and installation. Capitán has shot campaigns for world-renowned fashion brands and magazines including Vogue, Dazed, Gucci, APC and Mulberry. Her first solo institutional exhibition was held at the Daelim Museum in South Korea (2018). Her second is in March 2019 at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris.
