Carte blanche to Barbara Soyer and Sophie Toulouse: Hendrik Hegray
For this third day of carte blanche, our two guests of the week, Barbara Soyer and Sophie Toulouse, co-founders of The Drawer platform, present us the multidisciplinary artist Hendrik Hegray who is currently presented at the Escougnou-Cetraro gallery.
Designer, musician, video artist, performer, sculptor, author of numerous fanzines (including Nazi Knife, created in 2006, with Jonas Delaborde), Hendrik Hegray multiplies practices, projects, collaborations (with Lili Reynaud Dewar, in particular) and publications in a relative economy of forms and means. The photocopier is a central tool in his practice. Reams of old paper, a little yellowed or brightly coloured, a privileged support. His recent drawings, following lines and hatches in black Bic and ink, are striking for their nervousness and simplicity. The images he finds and confronts in his books and films are distinguished by their lack of qualities and their aridity. Against the times and its high-tech tropism. That’s part of the reason we’ve loved and followed our work for some time. Artist selected for the Ricard Prize 2014, he is currently exhibited at the Escougnou-Cetraro gallery in Paris.
