Julien Fargetton

About

Words

Julien Fargetton [...] casts a curious eye on the world, looking for the origins of things, even if it means changing their destiny. In his drawings, his sculptures inventions and performative actions, Fargetton walks turn by turn in the footsteps of an explorer, an inventor and an anthropologist, who poetically and wittily expresses the opposite of the forms of determinism of the world surrounding him.
