Noémie Goudal’s work is inspired by removed and isolated places with distinct narrative influence. She constructs fictional photographic landscapes by amalgamating sections of exiting architectural constructions on large scale photographic backgrounds. The resulting works exist in a state between illusion and reality, with ambiguity to which state they truly belong.

Satellite I and Satellite II (both 2014) refer to Brutalist and Cosmic Indian architecture. They explore the artist's ongoing interest in geomorphic structures and the relationship between nature and artifice. Despite Goudal’s deliberate clues to the uncertainty of these imagined post-industrial architectural monuments, a sense of determined purpose, rigidity and stature is conveyed in each of the works.

Satellite I is an important addition to Mead Gallery’s developing international photography collection and relates to both photographic and non-photographic artworks that explore architecture and landscape. The work explores themes that are significant to the collection, such as the possibilities of photographic technique, and genres such as narrative and documentary.
