Description

ARTIST’S APPROACH

Born in 1972 in Algeria, Faiçal Baghriche now lives and works in Paris. His work, combining multiple materials (objects, images, videos, etc.), mingles poetry with simplicity. With a false candour laced with humour, he reveals relationships of domination, stereotypes and the absurdities of our time. By playing with offsets, displacements and ellipses, he distances the world, the better to display it.

THE ARTWORK

A man places a plastic mannequin wrapped in golden fabric in front of the Louvre Museum in Paris, then departs. In this way, he counterfeits entertainers who mimic sculptures. The tourists are satisfied with this false false sculpture.
