Joachim Monvoisin

Born in 1987

Lives and works in Rennes

“Creating a shift, crossing the line into the setting, making a mockery or playing innocent, poking fun at aesthetic ideals, pushing materials to their limits, juggling pop culture references, throwing people off balance: Joachim Monvoisin’s work follows a whimsical logic that factors in the escape routes that art is likely to provide. From architecture to quantum physics, from the western genre to illuminati blogs, his work holds the world in an oblique embrace, and thus escapes any strict designation – referentiality – to enter the realm of speculative evocation. Voyage, voyage.”

Excerpt from a text by Eva Prouteau, written on the occasion of the exhibition Le principe d’incertitude, Centre d’art de Pontmain, 2016.
