Sans Titre, All Tomorrow's Parties

2011 ArtPrize Entry
Save

Bruno Peinado’s practice is wholly contained within the light, clear line that runs through all his work.... He cuts out, draws and projects icons that seem to have come straight out of a badge, suddenly and frighteningly insisting on what up to now belonged in the realm of the accessory. Peinado’s arrangements are far from inoffensive; by a logic of graphic crossbreeding, he demonstrates the possible existence of a society where symbolic worlds cross over, where identities are hybridised, all of which is made desirable by the aggressively seductive look of these forms plucked from some imaginary and particularly well stocked drugstore.... Friends of Bruno Peinado know that the work is no doubt made in the image of the man, whose motto could be borrowed from the late Pierre Desproges: “You can laugh at everything, but not with everyone.” En attendant Bruno, Dorothée Dupuis in TEXTS, Éditions Loevenbruck, Paris, avril 2009.
