Pierre Ardouvin

Doing the most with the least, highlighting the difference, the strange, the "outside" through the most banal and hackneyed references: this is Pierre Ardouvin's artistic economy.

His use of materials, motifs and domestic objects, manifestly subverted, is designed to challenge emotions without really deceiving perceptions. The point, precisely, is to reveal the potential of the terrifying and the marvellous contained in these common material bodies, their natural accumulation of dreams and nightmares, these being the two faces of their faculty for madness and escape, however prosaic and tangible their reality. And always maintaining an ambiguous balance between pleasure and discomfort, intimacy and danger, suspension and fall.
