Introduction

"Nothing is more fantastic and madder than real life, and that the poet confines himself to collecting a confused reflection, as in a badly frosted mirror."
Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann, Night Tales (1816)

Pierre Aghaikian immerses us in a rather wobbly and tenebrous universe: hybrid beings and truncated bodies stand out in apocalyptic settings worthy of the greatest Hollywood fictions. The dantesque universe he represents seems on the verge of implosion. Throning and wearing an imperial crown, the artist represents himself in "Selfportrait" (2014) as a demiurge monarch, reigning over creatures of an indefinite identity (monstrous beings, characters with sketched or narrow faces...) Pierre Aghaikian's works are nurtured by references to cinema, music and fashion and arouse both desire and fear that his spontaneous and urgent gesture only reinforces.

 

Pierre AGHAIKIAN was born in 1994 in Lyon. He lives and works in Paris.
