What language does to art.

The language acts in the work of David Douard as a material as such. By this means, he redefines a new social space, hybrid, in full mutation. By injecting the poems of anonymous people always marked by a form of chaos, deviance, disease or frustration, he recreates a contaminated environment in parallel to the real world, augmented by the fantasy of new digital technologies.

A graduate of the Beaux-Arts de Paris, his work has been presented in solo and group exhibitions by international institutions such as recently at the FRAC Île-de-France, Paris (2020), the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, Ireland (2019), KURA. c/o Fonderia Artistica Battaglia, Milan (2018) and again at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2014 and 2018).

The artist dialogues with Xavier Franceschi, director of the Frac Ile-de-France.
