Bertrand Lavier has built up a body of work which, depending on which of the various “building sites”, or “chantiers” is open but never closed, invites visitors to let go of their certainties. Playing with categories, codes, genres and materials, Lavier’s art shows an inclination for addition, cross-fertilisation, hybridisation and transposition. The retrospective hosted by the Centre Pompidou, some fifty works arranged by theme and not chronologically, are arranged to shed light on this enterprise of short-circuiting identities. An exhibition that calls upon the eye and the mind in equal measure.
