One-single-artwork-show #1: John Cornu

John Cornu´s artwork “Untitled” is made up of a collection of ten vertical pieces of polished and blackened wood lenght against the wall at regular intervals, as if they formed a single, united plane.
John Cornu essentially works in situ adapting his practice and formal language to the spaces that he inhabits: an architectural graft on Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye, an exhibition of burnt stretchers in a gallery, or else “wild” cleaning of a portion of wall in a public space. His works often evoke the theme of travesty, tracing “the contours of a manipulated reality where what we are given to observe never exactly corresponds to what we think we are observing” (Christian Alandete).

French artist John Cornu, born 1976, lives and works between Rennes and Paris. His work has been shown in many art insitutions and galleries s.a.: Palais de Tokyo, Paris (F), Cneai, Paris (F), Musèe des Beaux-arts, Calais (F), Musée des Beaux-arts, Rennes (F), Musée Particulière, Brussels (BE), Musée Picasso, Paris (F), Biennale de Lyon (F), Sainsbury Center for Visual Arts, Norwich (UK), Circa, Montréal (CAN), ZQM, Berlin (D), Busan Biennale (KR), Biennale d`art contemporain de Jukoutsk (RUS), Ricou Gallery, Bruxelles (BE), Galerie Thaddeus Ropac, Paris (F), Galerie Anne de Villepoix, Paris (F), 
Galerie Gilla Lörcher, Berlin (D) a.o.
