Stock is a monumental installation created especially for the Salle Poma at the Centre PasquArt in Bienne (Switzerland) by Swiss artist GILLES PORRET. As his previous work, this installation questions the colors, their combination, their significations and their effects by using 285 wood paletts of 11 different colors.
In addition to his personal work, GILLES PORRET works as as curator. He also teaches drawing and painting at the ECAV (Ecole Cantonale d’Art du Valais) since 1997. He published in 2009 a monograph entitled Synthétiques with the Infolio editions.
And good news: Stock is currently on view at Centre PasquArt, Bienne (Switzerland) through January 22nd, 2012.
