Various documentary approaches of Fabrice Hyber's work and an original video work conceived for this DVD.
“Works and Process” is a monographic collection of DVDs dedicated to contemporary artists directed by Gilles Coudert. Every “monograph” uses an encyclopaedic principle and suggests discovering and understanding the approach of a creator through various documentary approaches, films and unknow archives of the artist.
French artist Fabrice Hyber (born 1961 in Luçon) is acknowledged to be one of the major figures of French
contemporary art. Over the past thirty years Fabrice Hyber has worked with highly diverse
approaches creating a vast corpus of work with striking formal and conceptual ramifications.
Dialogue with many different disciplines adds to the variable geometry of Fabrice Hyber's
work. Interaction with physics, neuroscience, astronomy, phytotherapy… takes the viewer to
a much wider plane where all the dimensions of human experience are summoned. Hyber
multiplies possibilities for intervening on shape, behaviour, organization by working with
many different media—paint, video and installations. His conception of art rubs up against
ways of living the world. His proposals challenge the ways we interpret what is real, what
Hyber sometimes refers to as the “commerce” of forms.
