Touring a World in Transition

The artist book Tour du monde en transition has arrived. It covers 10 years of work reconfigured in light of my narrative turn. Chapters documenting projects alternate with micro-narratives made up of various elements. It is divided into three sections: contemporary experience, museums and heritage and the urban environment.

“PICTOGRAMS AND ANECDOTES” LECTURE

25/11/21, MUSÉE DES BEAUX-ARTS, ROUEN

 

An invitation by Tania Vladova to accompany the exhibition Display Home at the Hus – ESADHaR.

 

For a long time, my work was about reducing things to their essence: I decant the spirit of down-at-heel places into pictograms. Then I conduct pseudo tourist campaigns to promote these unlikely destinations. One day, I asked myself about the ideological implications of my work and suddenly, it became urgent to rethink the whole undertaking.

 

This lecture includes both pictures and stories to describe an ongoing metamorphosis.

Display Home

ESDAHaR, ROUEN, 18/10-15/12/2021

An invitation by the art school in Rouen to exhibit in their house-shaped exhibition module in the entrance hall revived my interest in the failed utopia of collective social housing. On the inner walls, proliferations of colored squares evoke the scrambling of the modernist grid practiced by contemporary architects. On an outer wall, photocopies using text, simulations of interiors made with the Ikea design tool and flower collages form a tale of the difference between planed and lived reality.

SCULPTURE INSTALLED

FLOOD ABACUS, 2021

The sculpture, installed in a flood zone in Courcelles sur Seine in late August 2021, was designed to measure the rising waters and playfully inform the general public of their dangers.

 

Commissioned by AREAS, financed by The Seine Eure Agglo, the Ministry of Culture and private sponsors.

ACQUISITION

FRAC PAYS DE LA LOIRE, 2021

The FRAC Pays de la Loire has acquired the 12 Journals created in 2020. Ceded on a non-exclusive basis, in the form of pdf files and color photocopy fanzines, the FRAC will be able to recompose the material to make new stories.

GROUP EXHIBITION “X”

FRAC PAYS DE LA LOIRE, 2021 - 22

This exhibition, curated by Claude Closky, was to celebrate the reopening of the FRAC after a year of renovations. The works, contained in the collection or borrowed, "all have in common that they look at the unfolding of daily life, at the impact of time on work, or that they adopt a specific temporality in the way they are exhibited" (CC).

 

Exhibition runs until January 2 2022.

OF INEXACT SCIENCE

PUBLIC ART PROPOSAL, 2021

Student Union building, La Doua campus, Lyon University

The proposal for the this science and technology campus is a six-part comic strip. Born of consultations with experts in several fields (engineering, sociology, comparative literature, graphic design), it adopts what appears to be the language of science but is in fact transdisciplinary. From a distance, with its figures and pseudo-formula, it seems to embody the scientific spirit. If we look at its narrative content, the scenario is absurd.

(Proposal not accepted).
