Book published on the occasion of the exhibition Bruno Pélassy, from 16 January to 22 March 2015 at the Centre d’art contemporain d’Ivry - le Crédac.
Curated by Claire Le Restif in collaboration with Florence Bonnefous, Marie Canet and the Pélassy family.
Born in Laos in 1966, Bruno Pélassy has produced a baroque, funny and incisive body of work, including a manifesto film, Sans titre, sang titres, cent titres, on which Marie Canet draws to highlight the links between the work and the Aids virus, which won the award in 2002. Bruno Pélassy’s works are produced in an artisanal spirit of accumulation and a taste for fabrication; by their precariousness they walk against permanence. At the crossroads of jewellery and decorative objects, they are domestic things because, made at home, they value in their elaboration as well as in their content the intimacy of the making and its destination.
