Benoit Platéus (b. 1972)
Benoit Platéus’s work doesn’t neglect any medium — photography, video, drawing or sculpture — in order to search for ambiguities in the most mundane field of visibility. Restless observer, he introduces a distance between objects and their perception in order to shift them to the other side, in a space with variable dimensions and multiple interpretations. In this way his art often acts as a psychic apparatus that plays on, questions and reflects the viewer’s perception and consciousness.
