Public Space With A Roof

Benoit Goupy

In his new work, Benoit Goupy went back to the source and essence of his artistic practice. Goupy's works manifest themselves usually as subtle interventions in the space that he sees as live organisms; they always appear “here and there but not anywhere on the surface of the space, as arteries under the skin.” Following the architecture of the space, Goupy's marks inside a space are a product of the traces that the outside reality leaves on his own perception. In the space of the PSWAR library, Goupy allowed a new element to step into his work: a sound performance that connects together his intimate story and the story of the space.
