About the work…

The exhibition “Une curieuse vitrine” was composed of a multitude of intriguing and heterogeneous objects as well as colorful projections that animated geometric volumes.

At the heart of this festive atmosphere, we discover a complex world where horror strangely rubs shoulders with frivolity: photos of Senegalese and Moroccan riflemen dead for a nation that is not theirs, piled human skulls in salt dough that refer to the genocide operated by the Khmer Rouge. In this work, the artist remixes, often in a traditional way, various objects, memories and elements of culture that are dear to him and transmits facts to us in a committed, sensitive and clairvoyant way.
