Jean-Baptiste Farkas

Jean-Baptiste Farkas provides services where ordinarily it would be expected an artwork from an artist. His collaborative projects are named: IKHÉA©SERVICES (1998), Glitch, Beaucoup plus de moins! (2002) and PRACTICES IN REMOVE (2015). According to him: the art object is a burden, it has become inessential; in the present context, subtraction must be considered a major gesture; our opinion of authorship, based upon the idea that there is one single author behind each work of art, is a delusion, a convenient shortcut that has to be rethought; the exhibition is an outdated stylistic device that needs to be abandoned in favour of other approaches, such as manoeuvre or operations.
