About the Artists

, United States

Benoit Géhanne works on series - paintings, volumes, drawings, photographs - each title of which states the process: Retention, retreat, bias, projection, arrow...

BG draws his plastic vocabulary from his environment, particularly industrial infrastructures: through photography, he indexes found forms that echo the formal solutions of abstraction. By taking and making visible these fragments of space, architecture and objects, he questions the impact of abstract art on the standardization of popular culture and urban spaces.

Benoît Géhanne then re-injects all or part of these images into his pictorial practice. Isolated, cut out, these found forms are then detached from their referents; they lose their legibility and gain in autonomy. He thus explores this "domesticated" abstraction, making gestures that reiterate a process of abstraction: an abstraction that is not non-figurative for him, but which is claimed in the gesture of extraction, that is to say, literally, of abstraction of the fragment that will become the work.

Benoît Géhanne probes the resistance of forms, testing their displacement in an economy of the gaze, where the act of seeing is directly linked to appropriation and identification. His pieces question in fine the way in which we are led to see and to look at all things.

He produces traps for the gaze, plastic spaces that generate doubt, that suspend understanding, leading the viewer to reinvent his or her gaze.
