The unfamous bébéfleurs' come back, 2021
At the pool
Plastic dough, terracotta pots, soil
Next to the kiosk stand two currently ubiquitous raised beds. Cédric Fargues is fascinated by the banality of everyday life and the aesthetics of the homemade. He poses as a fetishizing but lazy beekeeper, confectioner, or florist - as in the case of his installation The unfamous bébéfleurs' come back (2021). In the flowerbeds are his "bébéfleurs," hand-shaped fimo plants with sweet faces that will never grow. Unfortunately, you can't touch them either.
Fargues describes his own work as follows:
They destroyed our death
By rising again
They restored our life
About the artist
Cédric Fargues (b. 1988 Figeac, FRA) describes his art as Rustic Pop Art. His paintings, sculptures, and installation address the particularities of the mundane activities of everyday life and a fascination with the handmade. Most recently they have been on view at the NICC in Brussels and the New Galerie in Paris.
