Serge Spitzer installation at Palais de Tokyo, Paris



Seemingly displaced, fragmented and multiplied, Serge Spitzer's works are either synthetic, serial, or monumental; since they have cashed in on minimalist abstraction, they are freed from a single and unchanging viewpoint.

Serge Spitzer s’emploie à révéler des éléments, des formes et des systèmes cachés dont on perçoit les effets sans chercher à en connaître les causes.

The "Re/Search: Bread and Butter with the ever-present question of How to define the Difference between a baguette and a Croissant (II), 1995-2010." is a monumental installation where Serge Spitzer unveiled a chaotic assembly using a maze of pipes in which air whistle capsule, propelled by air. Bringing out to the audience a technology that usually lurks like a beast in the cave of our cities, Serge Spitzer asks ironically its function and makes it entirely obsolete.

Il en est ainsi de "Re/Search : Bread and Butter with the ever present Question of How to define the difference between a Baguette and a Croissant (II), 1995 - 2010.", installation monumentale où Serge Spitzer dévoile un assemblage chaotique en utilisant un labyrinthe de tuyaux pneumatiques dans lesquels sifflent des capsules, propulsées par de l’air. En faisant ressurgir dans l’espace public une technologie qui d’ordinaire se tapit comme une bête dans l’antre de nos villes, Serge Spitzer interroge non sans ironie, sa fonction et la rend parfaitement désuète.
