Ci-après appelé “l’artiste”:
Friday October 5 8:30 pm
I go to a table carrying a box of cardboard. Sitting at the table, I open it and take out a pile of papers. I hold a pencil in my hand.
Over the years the artist has developed a strong interest for the impact of time in his ephemeral productions. The theatre of the everyday is on the one hand emphasized and on the other, perverted by the construction of a poetic unreal. As a symbol of our consumer society, the cardboard box is at the center of his multidisciplinary practice, where installations, drawings, videos, photos and performances follow and juxtapose each other.
