Born in 1968, Renaud Auguste-Dormeuil has been questioning how images are created since the mid 1990’s, envisioned in their public and political arena.
Visibility/invisibility, light/darkness, remembering/forgetting, what we know/what we think we know, evoking without showing, saying without speaking… are all markers for understanding his works, which shape the codes that structure the flow of images. Although the artist’s ini¬tial preoccupations essentially focused on new cartographies, for a number of years, his work has taken a more metaphorical and performative turn.
Designed as a constellation of experiences within the MAMAC and in the public area, his exhibition in the contemporary gallery took the form of a series of infra-thin and performances set up during the exhibition’s timeframe, involving the public by means of various participatory approaches.
