Culture populaire


Assemblage / Fondation Cartier, Paris / 2OO1

I made this assemblage for the exhibition entitled Un art populaire at the Fondation Cartier. Among the guest artists were "real" folk artists, far removed from the world of contemporary art, and others from a more urban background who included elements of folk art in their work. The sixty-five cuckoo clocks set to different times hypnotise us with the movement of their pendulums and the entropic sound of their mechanisms, then surprise us when the singing cuckoos suddenly emerge.
