Alain Declercq
 
Alain Declercq (born 1969 in Moulins, France, lives and works in Paris and New York) has managed to impose his work on the art scene by asserting a praxis where manipulation of the visible becomes the object of perceptive intrigue. Installations, photographs, drawings, and films are all means of exploring the languages of power and the forms of oppression they give rise to. With wit, and often with irony, Alain Declercq toys with forms of security-related schizophrenia, like surveillance systems. To worry reality, and reveal systems, every manner of strategy is offered: shadowing, infiltration, and investigation. All techniques stemming from the spy novel which Alain Declercq calls upon again in his pieces, as he does for exhibition arrangements themselves.
