About the Artist

About the Exhibition


Painter project

In popular culture, the figure of the artist seems doomed to be associated with the figure of the painter, with all the stereotypes that accompany it: the gaze and the gesture, the troubles and sorrows, the genius and his or her fate. Taking as his material the stills of biographical films about legendary painters (van Gogh, Pollock, Kahlo . . .), Simon M. Benedict composes a new story that scrutinizes the fragmented portrait that we make of the artist. Visual and auditory ellipses and loops force this typical artist to repeat the same actions and the same statements, despite having set out to make what has never been made before. Performing in front of spectators, the artistic hero%u2014more often than not a white male%u2014becomes in some way the equivalent of his or her work.

This exhibition are part of the Inventing Risk programming, which invites us to reconsider the way we make art and the way we think the image.
