« CCCP: Can’t crush crazy people » deciphers fragments of a life, of a life experience, and pays homage to the crazy, the marginalized and the various autodidacts… In a joyful and apparently harmless way, Skunkdog fights against the dogmatisms and fanaticism of our world. The social being is at the heart of his creation.
A kind of bizarre and paranoid Lucifer for some, a generous and sensitive epicurean for others, the artist calls for a return to reality and sensitivity. In Marrakech, during his residencies at Jardin Rouge, he composed his work for over a year. The chessboard becomes his great project, his object of analysis…. He criticizes the grip of transhumanism. His group of ten sculptures, completed by a series of drawings, depicts beings, half-human and half-robot. These exoskeletons are allegorical characters of human madness.
One of a kind, the artist spends his time LIVING. As an « attentive spectator », one must take the time to discover the signs and obsessions of Skunkdog. For him, it is a matter of bringing man’s metaphysical pretensions to their proper place.
Jardin Rouge Residency – Salle des Casques – From 12 february to 31 march 2018
