Born in the north of France in 1985, Léa Habourdin studied printmaking at ESTIENNE in Paris, then photography at the National School of Photography in Arles.
Her relation with printed image is tactile and inhabited by matters. Using photography and drawing, her series observe and surround a certain permeability of worlds, they evolve in chapters where the printed form holds a place of first choice.
Her work has been shown in many festivals (Rencontres d’Arles, Photo Phnom Penh – Cambodia, Kaunas Festival – Lithuania, Lianzhou Festival – China) and has been awarded several times (BnF Talent Award, Maison Blanche and Boutographies jury’s prize).
In 2014 she received the Carte Blanche PMU award in association with Thibault Brunet, in 2015 she exhibited at the Bal (Paris) and two monographs were published: Chiens de fusil (Editions Filigranes) and les Immobiles (editions Le Bec en l’air).
From the deconstruction of an artist’s book in public (Relier-Delier at the Deyrolle house in 2017) to the book she produced as a trace of her performance (Je vous écris at the Czech Cultural Center in 2016), she has been developing in recent years a singular relationship to the printed object, multiple, performed.
Her work is in public (BnF, Franklin Furnace Foundation) and private (United States, Japan, France, Ireland) collections.
