  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Kevin Rouillard's work could echo both the globalization of commodity exchanges and the workers' gesture. In recent years, he has been particularly interested in canisters, a type of packaging widely used throughout the world which, once empty, can be considered as recyclable waste, alleviating for some the heaviness of life. He then begins to burn them, to hammer them, to unfold them, to assemble them and, in a frantic din, comes out of them "paintings" made of sheet metal and metal.

Lives and works in Paris

For Kevin Rouillard, the context is never neutral, it determines the objects' status, their reception and value. Kevin Rouillard shows his lack of interest for oppositions between true or false, the original and the copy, in a system that creates value for artworks.

This may also explain his reluctance to circumscribe his work to postcolonial commitment (despite a maternal link with Cape Verde): he belongs to a generation of artists that has perceived the paradox of being allocated an identity to origins of which they actually have little knowledge. To broach the subject, he therefore finds oblique, non linear strategies, such as this last series.

To send products to Cape Verde, expatriates fill barrels because cargo transport isn't expensive, he says. "Once they arrive, these barrels become doors, wood-burning stoves, brushes, houses. I decided to transform them into twisted shields, used in the formation of Roman soldiers as a collective shell. Like a Trojan horse, the barrels have also become paintings.
