Pleased to meet you #6, 2018
Text by Hervé Bize and conversation between André Cadere and Sylvère Lotringer
This sixth edition of our deluxe fanzine does not swerve from its vocation of presenting the artist as a rock star. Fascinatingly, it revisits the myth around the figure of André Cadere to better grasp his complexity. As a public personality with a secretive almost cabalistic practice, the artist’s slender figure would carry his round wooden bars around like so many seductive weapons of sabotage. Laying siege to the structures of power from the cracks in their facades, André Cadere’s oeuvre goes beyond the fringes of art and through its political aspect, defies convention and hypocrisy.
“Pleased to meet you. Hope you guess my name: André Cadere.”
