L'habit / The suit

This performance is inspired by a child’s suit. This found object, belonging to another era, appears to be a shrunken version of a grown up’s clothing. Not knowing the clothing’s specific history allows for a continual projection of possible scenarios.

FRANÇOIS SIMARD

DANS LA GADOUE JUSQU'AUX ESSIEUX

François Simard relegates matrix forms that act in spite of us, on the interpretation of what we see,  to the register of any other pictorial motif entering the composition of the painting. In so doing, he neutralizes their power of inflection of judgment.
