In the hands of French artist JONATHAN BINET, painting becomes a strong performative element, with which research is a constant experiment in order to know how to make forms.

Wielding an aerosol-can instead of a brush, BINET employs a range of surfaces including canvas, and existing architectural elements. Points, lines, traces, signs and imprints are a distinctive feature of his work which reveal an unpremeditated artistic action (involving color, space, movement of his body and of his hand) that is not dependent on a single viewpoint.

I always attribute great importance to the form, to the fact that you will end up seeing something without knowing anything about it. In the end, the indications of the prints can be an element that is just as plastic as it is explanatory. - JONATHAN BINET in conversation with VINCENT HONORE

By viewing the exhibition space as his own work place, JONATHAN BINET highlights the processual aspects of the making of his works and the provisional nature of the works themselves. His spatial images allow the viewer to come to conclusions, retrospectively, about the pictorial process, such as his movements in the space.

I have devised my practice within my studio, as a place of experiments and trial initiatives, a space where I establish working principles it is necessary to adjust sometimes, or at least validate later in the exhibition area, based on its specific physical and architectural features. - JONATHAN BINET in conversation with VINCENT HONORE

And good news: the intervention Dancefloor by JONATHAN BINET at Palais de Tokyo, Paris is currently on view until November 19, 2012.
