Man Ray,
Michel de Broin, Juliette Goiffon & Charles Beauté.

The proposition for the 25th anniversary of Artissima, is to present three generations of artists who redifined a reflexion about Art through their works on daily or found objects.

Flirting with the tradition of Surrealist and Dadaist, the Artefacts of Man Ray, well-known for his photographs, will put a light on an historical use of the daily objects into an artistical context. Michel de Broin (1970, Montreal) has a multifaceted production dealing with energy flows, entropic devolution and the forms of visual, spatial and thechnological paradox that derive from these forces. Crafting unforeseen relationships between waste, productivity, risk and consumption, de Broin defamiliarizes established modes of signification in everyday technical environements.

Juliette Goiffon & Charles Beaute? (1985 and 1987, Lyon Fr) are two young artists working on the new thechnologies, their obsolescence or their limits by questionning them through the spectrum of memory or archeology. The object manufacturated reminding daily objects becomes the materialization of a deep reflexion.
Each particular object is reactivated by the artist’s gesture. Sculptures, installations and photographs, each technical process comes to question in turn material, shape or the practice in itself.
