Look Who's Talking / Benoit Platéus

About this event
Benoit Platéus proposes his subjectieve view on the Un-Scene exhibition : a unique conference !

In various media, sometimes mixed – in doodles, scribbles, patchwork and shading, and with a studied naivety and plenty of tinkering, Benoit Platéus balances form and formlessness, meaningless scribblings and interpretable image. In his writings he dislocates the language by constructing sentences so they seem like clumsy translations. In his photos and objects he plays tricks on the viewer by increasing or reducing the scale through bizarre assemblies and other means. In this way his art often acts as an appareil physique (a psychological term that recurs in his work) that plays-on, questions and reflects the viewer’s own perception and consciousness.
