Julien Creuzet – "L’âme, dans poitrine, oiseau-tonnerre fêlure, divine-colère. Méprisable, je planterais sabre, je traînerais blessure dans sable (…)"
13 - 22 APR 2018
Perruche #2 presents the first solo exhibition by artist Julien Creuzet in Brussels. His multimedia installations use found objects, video, engraving and poetry toquestion the role of language for the individual and collective memory. Inspired by the philosophical reflections of Édouard Glissant, Julien Creuzet’s work focuses on the complex intersection of the history of Martinique and the events of European modernity. By blurring the border between technology and nature, the native and the foreign, high and low culture, he creates a spatial experience that is poetic and political at the same time.
Julien Creuzet (*1986) lives in Paris and holds a diploma from L’École des Beaux-Arts de Caen and a post-diploma from L’École des Beaux-Arts de Lyon. His workhas been recently shown in solo presentations at Bétonsalon and Fondation Ricard in Paris (2018), SKETCH Gallery in Bogota and Documentation Gallery in Chicago (2017); besides, in large international exhibitions such as the Bienniale of Lyon, the 11th Rencontres de Bamako (2017) and the Dakar Bienniale (2016).
