Over the last twenty-five years Belgian artist MICHEL FRANÇOIS has built up a complex body of work using all sorts of materials and a range of methods, combining sculpture, photography, video, installations as well as performance. FRANÇOIS analyses and refers to everyday customs and habits in associative manner without detracting from their general validity. In his photographs, he finds his subjects in the real ordinary world but what is registered by the artist is the unexpected in the familiar: L’ art, de toute façon, c’est la vie que l’on sculpte – MICHEL FRANÇOIS

Since 1994, for each new exhibition, a new large-format poster is created by the artist from his photographs and put on sale to the public. For the first time in Belgium, the Museum of Contemporary Arts at Grand-Hornu has chosen to republish them as a whole, with some 45 pictures (180 x 120 cm) printed in an edition of 1,000 copies.

MICHEL FRANÇOIS, 22.500 affiches 1994-2011 is currently on view at Museum of Contemporary Arts at Grand-Hornu, Belgium until January 29, 2012.
