Primarily working in photography, Fournier produces imaginary archives that envision different mythologies for the future. Fournier is driven by a curiosity for utopias, where his photographs span through the lenses of space exploration, visionary architectures, and the technological transformation of the living, among others. By capturing current technological advancements in his exploration of futuristic fiction, Fournier’s photographs reside in a liminal space across different temporalities of our past, present and future. His choice of subject matter not only gives rise to certain aesthetic and philosophical concerns about our existence but also embodies a capacity to generate stories that straddle between the real and imagined realms of what our world could come to look like.

While bordering several oppositions between fact and fiction, science and faith, the ambiguity in Fournier’s images go beyond these simplistic binaries to expand the field of possibilities toward visualising, dreaming and imagining of our future. His works can be found in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET), the Centre Pompidou, and Fondation Louis Vuitton, among others. Most recently, Fourier has staged solo exhibitions at the Fondation Bullukian, Lyon (2019) and Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna (MAMbo), Bologna (2017). In addition to major group exhibitions at UCCA Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing (2019), Mori Art Museum, Tokyo (2019) and the ArtScience Museum, Singapore (2017).
