STRONF… LE F EST MUET
SATERDAY 07.06.08 AT 7PM
Marker or pen in hand, Benoit Platéus captures the small events of his everyday life or sudden ideas which could become works. This artist’s book gathers an intuitive selection in this flow, which oscillates between the acuity of caricature and the abandon of automatic writing. Incisive and very funny, this set of drawings reveals the regressive and lucid insolence the poetic universe of Benoit Platéus’s work contains.
