Introduction

Florent Lamouroux's work questions the representation of the "Other" through his own identity, by developing a practice - active and reactive - that responds to absurd images of the world with even more grotesque parodies.

His approach consists in replaying with irony the stereotypes that our image society contributes to produce and thus tends to question the world on its possible standardization. Irony is for him a means of contradicting the established order by using mockery as a weapon and simulacrum as a means of expression.

Aware of the world around him, the artist then favours the autonomy of creation and the economy of medium in reaction to spectacular and smoothed blockbusters: to create his sculptures, he simply envelops "reality" in an assembly of plastic sheets and adhesive tape, thus creating empty, artificial and standardised body arrangements, in the image of these plastic toys that the artist likes to draw inspiration from.

Florent Lamouroux's work also takes shape through performances, photographs and videos.


Florent Lamouroux was born in 1980 in Decize (FR).
He lives and works in Huismes in Indre et Loire (FR).
