Hypnose par le grand bouc / De(s) Rives#2

Art market or art in the market, merchandising or food for thought, this new project raises the fundamental questions of the daily proximity of art, of its place in the city and the freedom of artists to  create, at least temporarily, out of traditional networks. For De(s)rives#2, twenty artists have been invited to take possession of the Beauvau market, Place d'Aligre.

For this project, I choosed a butcher's shop to show my new piece called Hypnose par le grand bouc ; hypnosis by the great He-goat. This work refers to the goya's painting called Witches' Sabbath (The Great He-Goat). Here, the witchcraft (Hypnosis) done by the great He-goat awaken the human's unconscious putting him in front of his destiny and those of other living beings on the earth.

Panem & Circenses

This solo exhibition presented at Dastan Gallery, from August 16th to September 13th 2019, features a series of drawings, paintings and three animated works. The title of the exhibition is a latin phrase that is literally translated to "Bread and circuses". The phrase is attributed to the Roman poet, Juvenal active in the late first and early second century AD.
In his Satire X Juvenal writes : "Already long ago, from when we sold our vote to no man, the People have abdicated our duties; for the People who once upon a time handed out military command, high civil office, legions — everything, now restrains itself and anxiously hopes for just two things: bread and circuses."
