Biography

Gauthier Le Rouzic is part of a still emerging lineage of Geek artists without making the apology fictional science of the format. The playful aspect of these pieces allows spectators of all ages to identify, remember or project into the future, creating a modern poetry barely exploited in Art.

The object looks at itself, listens, plays and communicates. The history of the objects used creates a contemporary narrative that is interpreted in a life experience of our own. In a deep and pragmatic approach, the pieces of Gauthier Le Rouzic initiate a meeting machine / human to create a dialogue that does not exist. The artist is then forgotten, these machines become literally his word. He communicates with these tools as a magician communicates with these towers. He gives voice to inert objects, is this the hidden desire of Man, that everything around him speaks to him and communicates with them?

Questioning the evolution of these machines giving them a second life, so that others after us can never forget what and where the computer revolution started. Involve the network and the communication in a solemn work, filled with a desire to relive to a bygone era, feeling born of a nostalgia that he did not know, while putting a new and optimistic view on the probable relation love that the man will live with digital, here is the work of Gauthier Le Rouzic.»
