The work of Alexandre Lavet plays with the idea of emptiness, disappearance and erasure. Under the apparent homogeneity of exhibition spaces lie the details that mark the uniqueness and specificity of each place. It is these elements that Alexandre Lavet wants to bring to light, thereby making the viewer more aware of the environment surrounding him.
Alexandre Lavet (1988) received both his BFA and MFA from the École Supérieure d’Art in Clermont-Ferrand, France. Recent solo exhibitions include ‘Everyday, I don’t’ at CAC Passerelle in Brest, France, ’Learn from yesterday. Live for today. Look to tomorrow.
