Tiane Doan na Champassak (1973) is a French visual artist of Asian descent, living between Venice and Paris. In the last 10 years, he has developed a complex body of work infusing his own photographic production with techniques of appropriation, variation, décollage and reiteration. Champassak primarily subjects found materials from the streets, flea markets and the internet as well as magazine cuttings, photographs, family albums and memorabilia. By using a large variety of conceptual processes, his practice is based on the recontextualization of readymades, exploring notions such as détournement (diversion) and acheiropoieta (works made without human interaction). A strong focus in his work is producing artist’s books, which have lately become part of important private and public collections such as Centre Pompidou (Paris), Tate Modern (London), Getty Research Institute (Los Angeles), MoMA Library, ICP, Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney’s Collection and NYPL (New York), Bibliotheca Hertziana (Rome), Museo Reina Sofia (Madrid), to name but a few.
