ABOUT ARTIST
Florent Poussineau is a contemporary artist based in France. Poussineau’s works are about relationships between people (individuals and also as a society) and food (and the food industry). Poussineau works mainly in performance, video, installation, and painting. In this exhibition we present Poussineau’s latest oil paintings of wild sapiens on ceramic and other landscapes made by himself. Poussineau create works from questions about the relation that we all have with food in the society. He especially focused on the western society’s food culture because it is where he was born and raised, and especially France, as he is based in today. Poussineau uses food both as a fine material, close to a piece of art, elite, and as a repulsive and disgusting element. Through food He play, prioritize, provoke contradictory feelings and reproduce in a certain way particular behavioral patterns present in our consumer society.

As Poussineau himself also mentions, having partnerships with professionals in the food industry is essential in his work. It questions the status of the artist / craftsman, gastronomic territory and knowhow. From an early age Poussineau was able to have apprenticeship with professionals in the food industry, including his father who is a pastry chef, and for many years his father has been one of  main teachers of Poussineau.

Food has been occupying our major daily actions; hunting, cultivating, harvesting, preparing, sharing, cleaning, and consuming, and so on. Besides the past enormous development of the science and technology and the improvement of mass productions and changing of our diet or that cooking at home has became not essential activity in some culture, food remains as a significant dominant part of our culture and it will always be. Looking at the food through Poussineau’s work is another way to experience consuming, discovering, and questioning of our food culture, and ourselves.

“The evolution of human thought has led him to suppress his enemies and to increase his dominant position in his territory. He has colonized the entire planet and is now in overpopulation. With his heritage passed down for generations, he has the conscience, the knowledge, the technology and the communication. He lives in society, in urban or rural environments and generally in shared dwellings. His diet consists of food wrapped in plastic and harvested in what is called supermarket. Fruits and vegetables, preparations made from cereals, dairy products and also meat. Where do these foods come from, how are they produced, what is livestock traceability? Individuals belonging to a relatively new species no longer wish to know it, and no longer wish to do so on their own. This is the situation of contemporary sapiens in 2019.” -Florent Poussineau 2019
