BIOGRAPHY

French contemporary artist Skall has been active since the 80ies in Europe and abroad. He evolves in a world of Baroque hybrid figures and objects, juggling between sculpture, ready made, performance and photography. A kitsch and nevertheless sophisticated poetry haunts his precious object compositions, while his performances, elaborated with found objects which he uses to morph his body, are sometimes pushed to the very limits of the bearable.

His photography could be considered the essence of his work, in which we find the performance and the object. Each self-portrait is a splendorous metamorphosis connecting the natural and artificial, the precious and the banal the traditional folk and the mass-produced.
