Martin Le Chevallier
Martin Le Chevallier was born in May 1968. He came to the field contemporary art at the end of the 1990s after working as a graphic designer. Interactivity
informed his early pieces: a game of video surveillance, a parody of an automatic voice response system, interactive videos, etc. He then turned to films and video installations
, treating questions of utopia, globalization, or political beliefs with a unique mix of humor and poetry. Simultaneously, he created a whole series of process- or context-based works: he had himself audited by a consulting firm; he secured a pool in the Tuileries Gardens with toy-size remote-controlled patrol boats; he set up bleachers in the window of a gallery to suggest that the world is a theater, etc. Martin Le Chevallier lives and works in Paris.
