For more than 20 years, Michel Blazy has been creating installations from perishable materials like shaving foam, whipped cream and puréed beetroot. He elevates an extraordinary range of ordinary household products to the status of art, mocking the very idea of artistic creation with his grotesque, ironic and perishable sculptures. From his bizarre works emerge an improbable subversion, smelling of strawberry yoghurt or grated cheese – Blazy revisits the style of Duchamp, emphasising all the wrongs of overconsumption, celebrates the trivialities of daily life and redefines vanity, highlighting the fleetingness of the material world. His exhibitions will both enchant and disgust you with the ugliness of this post-industrial era, masked as they are with artificial aromas.
