    Titre complet : Extrait (tole, choc) (5) « Finalement, la seule recette pour sortir une épée de la roche, c'est de devenir assez costaud pour soulever la roche avec, et d'utiliser le tout jusqu'a ce qu'il n'y ait plus de roche autour de la lame ! » (Boulet, Notes 10. Le pixel Quantique, Paris, Delcourt, 2016, p.11, 2017

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.
