Quarantaine de l'art confiné

Philémon Vanorlé - Quarantaine de l\'art confiné
Photographic series by Philémon Vanorlé taken on smartphone in an apartment in Le Touquet-Paris-Plage from March 17th to May 11th 2020, period of lockdown imposed on the French population because of the pandemic (covid-19): offbeat and humorous assemblages of food and everyday objects that the artist creates.
Limited edition of 55 copies (different covers, distributed randomly).
Born in Brussels in 1980, of Belgian nationality, Philémon Vanorlé lives in Lille (France). His artistic work reveals the comical and sometimes touching absurdity of forms, images or vernacular objects gleaned or injected into everyday life. Play on words, diversion, displacement, irreverence, characterizes a production that is both poetic and critical. Graduated with a doctorate in visual arts (Paris 1), he works under the effigy of the Société Volatile. He also works as a scenographer for the theatre.
