| Artist : Jean-Philippe Pernot
The Life of the Body
Jean-Philippe Pernot is an explorer. He elaborates his creations by investing as much in techniques as in subjects. With his hands in the material and his eye on the other, he gradually gets closer to the body. This carnal that we are and that he imprints in silver grains, in his movement, his mutation.
I like in this man this contradiction which is born from the relationship between his works, imbued with a feminine sensibility, a sometimes violent softness, and his massive frame which is placed wherever he takes it, without compromise.
The mutations of the living
His universe is populated by spheres which, aggregating, define the body, the incarnation, the putting into flesh and, the disappearance. And it is these expressions, these variations, these constant evolutions that allow him to define little by little the essence of man and to bear witness to his mutation of state and nature.
His wanderings are the paths that lead us to the human being, like collections of clues that are not to be seen, simply to be looked at, to be invested.
Today Jean-Philippe Pernot is attached to the body, the site of a historical mutation. The individual body is being modified, transformed, completed – chips, piercings, prostheses, grafts – with ever more numerous, ever more complex, ever more exogenous external elements.
