The George Tremblay Show
Born in 1966
Lives and works in Bordeaux and Toulouse
Serge Provost was born in 1966 in the Périgord region. He graduated from the Beaux-Arts in Bordeaux in 1991. He is known for his prolific sculptures and performances, the titles of which are often descriptions of the simple principles that govern them: Picking up puddles, Moving the chicks around, A glass plate that can no longer escape its fate… His process consists in collecting various types of materials at random, to which he often assigns functions that are not intrinsically theirs.
In 2002, S. Provost met Isabelle Fourcade, an architect and scenographer born in 1970 in Perpignan. Together, they founded the George Tremblay Show. They now live and work in Bordeaux, and come up with situations depending on the time and place. There is clearly a deliberate sense of immanence in the Show’s work. Fully convinced that they are the orphaned heirs of contemporary art, they reinvent a family to sing, dance, play, and live in on a daily basis. With Keatonesque eyes, statement suits, perfect dresses, and unerring steps, they maintain that the moment is only worth living if it is truly experienced. They know that they are not the first to think of the world this way, but count on the fact that they are certainly not the last.
Of course, everything and nothing has been said in this text, but rest assured, it is all they intend to tell you for now. You must see them to believe it.
