Cut out thumbnails, paste stickers and drop ink stains... This is how Christophe Stouvenel says "KIKI" defines his series No sense.
of surrealistic inspiration and Dada, all parts of the idea of assembling on grain paper, in the manner of a child but with the rigor of an adult, such disparate elements as shreds of
Old papers or scores, tickets for rides, old labels, negative photos etc... And this without any direct relationship between them.
To these chosen elements, carved, glued, organized, the artist "collagist" for the occasion, adds in a random way ink stains from china and stickers of colors.
With this choice of expression format for his "No Sense" (which he structures all in the same way, under the same type of framing in Matt Black, and without ever naming them), "KIKI" makes
Homage to the old papers, these newspapers or old books dating from the years 1900/1930 as well as those of the years 80, periods from where he draws an inexhaustible inspiration.
This series only exists by the fact that it has no specific meaning, that it is not limited in any way whatsoever.
