Olivier Garraud

More than a shift between low and high culture, it is more a question here of borrowing representations offering the exquisite corpse or games of reversal of interpretation.


An ironic gleaner and observer of society, Olivier Garraud claims the analogical and low tech relationship to the world around him as a sardonic way of looking at it. Gladly squeaky, his productions contribute to the generalized diversion of signs borrowed from reality as well as from a media and contemporary sphere.


While such work is partly nourished by the extensive use of the pencil, he develops prisms and compiles icons through animated sequences, mixed installations or wall hangings.
