Long Description:
DESCRIPTION DE L'OEUVRE

Cette œuvre est réalisée à partir de matériaux récupérés dans des cours à rebut et des cimetières de voitures. En créant des assemblages insolites et ludiques composés d’une multitude de produits de consommation, de matériaux et d’objets trouvés, l’artiste s’intéresse à l’impact des activités humaines sur leur environnement et les conséquences engendrées par nos habitudes de consommation. En ce sens, La contorsionniste confronte les spectateurs et les amène à se questionner sur l’impact global des gestes du quotidien. En pervertissant la nature des objets et des matériaux récupérés, Philippe Allard cherche à éveiller une conscience environnementale : « dans chaque œuvre, je parle d’une société qui continue de consommer et de s’autodétruire comme une malade. »
