Jean-Luc Moulène lives and works in Paris. The work of the photographer and visual artist is exhibited regularly, as for example at documenta X (1997) or at the biennal art festivals of São Paulo (2002) and Venice (2003). Solo shows were held among many others at the Center for Contemporary Art in Kitakyushu (2004), in the Louvre in Paris (2005) and at Dia:Beacon NY (2011). In the exhibition series "Layers of Time" the French artist presents a nude photograph of a model, who lies on the outspread pages of the daily newspaper "Le Monde". 29 July 2011, the date giving the title, marks the day of the image's shooting.
