About Caroline Gaudriault

by Marion de Baecque

Zig-Zag distrusts clichéd attitudes, prizes free will, is not afraid of being nostalgic, but would be embarrassed at being reactionary. What Zig-Zag loves more than anything else is the modern era in which it exists. And since impertinence is one of its character traits, it casts an ironic gaze on everything that absolutely insists on being more Modern than the Modern, on everything that has become the caricature of the Post-Modern.

Zig-Zag is based on the idea that thought, rather than plodding from Point A to Point B, proceeds in a spiral. Suspicious of consensus, Zig-Zag respects those who have the courage to contradict received ideas. Since the truth has multiple aspects and is often called into question, our reflections have a right to take a zigzag path, thus mirroring our era, which is seeking a meaning.

Independent journalist Caroline Gaudriault has long collaborated with leading international publications – including The Sunday Times Magazine, Stern, Time, and Paris-Match –, working on major projects around the world. She has painted word portraits of numerous iconic personalities who play a central role in intellectual life and the world of contemporary art.
Her career as a writer has been characterised by an ongoing dialogue with photography. On the editorial level, she is the compere of French photographer, Gérard Rancinan. Acting as a kind of screenwriter, she supports Rancinan’s images as she continues to contribute to an analytical process on which the pair has been working for many years.
She invites intellectuals into her reflective bubbles to discuss a variety of subjects, mixing and juxtaposing subjects linked to science, religion, philosophy and art.
