Vernissage de David Douard "Bat-Breath. Battery"

Saturday, September 5, 2015 18:00-21:00 CEST

September 5 - October 10, 2015
Opening on Saturday, September 5, 2015 from 6 to 9pm

Galerie Chantal Crousel is pleased to present David Douard's debut solo exhibition at the gallery.
In continuation of his research on language, the exhibition takes as its starting point texts and poems written by anonymous authors on blogs or forums.
Often marked by one form of chaos or latent discomfort, David Douard considers these texts which feed his sculptures, as an act of resistance. They are broadcast live in the exhibition space through an alternative/pirate radio created at the artist's studio in Aubervilliers.
David Douard draws his inspiration from cyberactivist mechanisms and offers a hybrid environment where sculptures become true resisting individuals.
Without any judgement, David Douard reveals our ambiguous relationship to a protective, yet decadent, technology. In the meantime, one should "watch the advent of things which abut every day on the steel frames of our society." 1

A graduate of the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2011, David Douard's works have been featured in a number of solo and group exhibitions at international institutions and art centers including: Fridericianum, Kassel (2015); Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2014); Taipei Biennale (2014); Sculpture Center, New York, (2014); Astrup Fearnley Museet, Oslo (2014); Fondation d'entreprise Ricard, Paris (2012).
