Mark Geffriaud’s (1977, FR) work alludes to the compartmentalized and arbitrary nature of institutional processes and cultural transmission. His pieces borrow elements from such entities but their particular dynamic provokes cognitive processes that subvert them. The misunderstanding, the shuffle, the lucid, the super-position, these tropes are the critical tools that the artist deposits in the hands of the observer, championing a more lax understanding regarding the association of knowledge.
