The Domain of Chaumont-sur-Loire shows the photographs of Guillaume Viaud as well as his invention of an amazing rucksack covered in mirrors, which reflects the environment of the person wearing it. Guillaume Viaud has used this device in various situations, playing with the effects that it produces on the landscape and on the gardens which it unusually refracts.
Born in 1983, Guillaume Viaud graduated from the École Régionale des Beaux-Arts in Rennes.
He has taken part in numerous collective exhibitions, including Allées et venues at the Jardin des Plantes in Sotteville-les-Rouen in 2005, Glenfiddich Art Centre in Scotland in 2006 and Pari Photo at the Maubrie Gallery in Paris in 2008.
In 2008, he was also given a residency at Giverny for the Terra Summer Residency Program. He will take part in the Flower Power group exhibition in Turin, Italy from 23 May to 11 October 2009.
Guillaume Viaud is associated with the Gabrielle Maubrie Gallery.
