Sans titre, 2015
Born in 1962, Richard Fauguet lives and works in Chateauroux, France. His postcards featuring pouring spouts from packaging are immediately recognisable as are his ceramic pyramids resembling pagodas or bow-legged cowboys. Visual puns drawn from the everyday world of the flea market as well as the history of art encourage laughter while nourishing the critical spirit as much as the imagination. Any kind of media may be appropriated from modelling clay to adhesive stickers, as long it allows the artist to have fun with reality. Just like the effigy of Darth Vader composed of discarded glass objects. Richard Fauget?s work has been exhibited at the FRAC Ile-de-France (2009), the FRAC Limousin (2010) and the Museum of Fine Arts in Rennes (2015). It is included in both public and private collections: FRAC, MAC/VAL in Vitry-Sur-Seine, the Pompidou Centre and the CNAP in Paris.
