ENTERTAINING VIOLENCE is proud to present Lucile, a photo book by the Spanish artist Sergio Calderón.

‘I took these photographs on 15th November 2015 in Paris. At a house in the Quartier Pigalle. The subject was Lucile. Which I met in March 2015 for a film project I was working on. Around that time I began to think about making a story about her. I imagined different situations and scenarios. Devising an abstract story. But I didn’t share with her too much from it. Just some ideas and moods. I wanted to discover more about Lucile.

We didn’t have much time to work. I photographed Lucile on a day off from her final exams at ESMOD Paris. I brought her to a place, with a certain atmosphere, allowing enough space for her to improvise. Somehow she wrote her own script.’

Lucile will be available in fall 2016. Softcover, limited edition of 200 copies. Each volume is individually signed and numbered by Calderón himself.


Sergio Calderón was born in Santander, Spain in 1978. With a background in literature and humanities. His early compositions show an interest in poetry, fragmented narratives and experimental short stories. They announce his visual language, unusual obsessions and methods. An increasingly interest for images did lead him to study visual arts in the late 90s. Following a successful career that spanned different fields, from art direction to film and photography.

In 2007, Sergio Calderón moved to London. Since then, he is expanding his oeuvre as an artist in numerous collaborations, as well as international exhibitions and performances in places such as Pompidou Centre Paris, Barbican London, Gazelli Art House London, Maxalot Gallery Amsterdam and Intelligentsia Gallery Beijing.

During two decades of work as visual artist, Sergio has been developing his own techniques, his own craftsmanship and approaches to a variety of media, to construct his distinctive language. An ongoing work of experience and design.

Sergio has been incorporating photography into his artworks since the late 2000s, with the series Vasilisa, The Space Between, Mountains and Live In Nagoya. In 2016, ENTERTAINING VIOLENCE publishes his first photobook, Lucile. Currently he is working in a new project. Querencia, a book to be released in 2017.
