Ivan Fayard, Aurélie Pétrel, Laurent Pernel & Susanne Themlitz
group show "CHEZ ROBERT"
FRAC Franche Comté, Besançon (France)
Exhibition untill May, 17th, 2015
Ivan Fayard has come at “chez-robert” for sure.... But he has not brought any objects along.He has worked on site, at Robert's .However, one cannot say he has worked in the place, but rather from the outside. Robert's exterior in not known. Ivan Fayard has ventured over there; one can still see the marks on the walls.
These marks are holes, or rather the back sides of holes that Ivan Fayard has been making one by one until they made up images. The images are reversible; they can be read from indoors as well as outdoors. The words are not; they give us clues about what is happening here.
These words ,like the images, send back to the one and same practice , tatoo, which consists in inscribing permanently a sign onto a support, in this case onto a body. By nature, the body is a transient support. That is the paradox.
A lick of paint will not be enough to erase the intervention of Ivan Fayard. Yet, this wall turned into black is definitely a painter's decision, which proves us that he has come at “chez-robert”, for sure....
Aurélie Pétrel (invited)
