Published on the occasion of the artist’s retrospective exhibition at MAC's, this catalogue presents the most comprehensive overview of François Curlet’s practice. Since the end of the 1980s, the French artist has elaborated a body of work through which the material world is dismantled by everyday poetry. Making use of both artifact and philosophy, the artist develops a strategy whereby mental associations take the form of allegories. From existential to trivial matters, his work is open to constant reinvention and surprise, using a vocabulary as close to joyful skepticism as it is to cynical laughter.
