Aurélien CILLER

 

BIOGRAPHY : 

 

Born in Marseilles in 1984, lives and and work in Marseilles since 2020.

Independent editor at A.C. Photo Editions since 2015.

Co-founder of the European Art Collective Wer Ulysses and Member of Association France-Danemark in Paris.

 

Aurélien started photography with the creation of +RIEL press agency in 2007 where he analyzed how interactions between individuals develop in our society. Since 2011, he is favoring slower shooting techniques and tends to overpass the traditional medium of photography by using unconventional printing techniques, e.g. printing on brushed aluminum for one of his first main exhibition Mystique in London, January 2018.

 

Observing people’s social behaviour and urban landscapes while travelling through Europe led him to produce several photo series and to develop his artistic network. It triggered him to create the Wer Ulysses art collective in 2013 whose goal was to gather young photographers from Europe around the thematic of wandering. The first group show he curated took place in Marseilles, followed by a tour of exhibitions in Europe with a last stop in Porto in November 2015.

 

Aurélien is also involved in book publishing. He registered as an independent editor in September 2015. His aim is to work with other photographers and writers to create collaborative art books. For Exotic Marseille, he invited a Spanish artist to compare their two photographic points of view on the same city. The publication was selected to be launched during the FRAC PACA Festival in April 2016. His last project from 2020 TROP DE SUN A MARSEILLE consists of a dialogue between images of local sceneries and writers from all around France that intends to address the power of the sun in Marseille and describe their feeling about the city.
