Pascal Konan

19.04 – 30.06.2021

At Jardin Rouge, Pascal Konan experiences his residency as a laboratory. He explores the art of recycling and imposes on his practice the awareness that everyone must take part in this apprehension. In a context where social divisions and the degradation of our environment are increasing, Pascal Konan evokes in a non-tragic choreography the challenges of tomorrow. We can see the dream and the desire for a different society, for unaligned utopias.

According to him, individual action is a way to make humanism concrete. The question of e-waste animates the artist who tries to give it a second life. These objects, symptomatic of our material societies, become the painter’s tools, transforming our bins into irreplaceable objects.

The Man, who appears in his work, seems to be the spectator, sometimes distant or unconscious, of this theatre of the world. What will be the « next stop ? » For the moment, we are dancing on the blue planet… and on the red planet. In this way, Pascal Konan asks us to question our representations of the future, and to open up new ways of thinking.

Jardin Rouge Residency – Salle des Casques – From 19 april to 30 june 2021
