Bertrand Lavier

*1949 Châtillon-sur-Seine, lives in Aignay-le-Duc und Paris

disrupts our traditional habits of seeing with his visually appealing works, questioning our intellect, but always with a sensitive wink. He gained international fame for painting pictures and objects, but especially for his Superpositions,” the juxtaposition of two different objects from the world of commodities that are absurdly related.

Lavier has had exhibitions at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; ZKM, Karlsruhe; Haus der Kunst, Munich; Schirn-Kunsthalle, Frankfurt; Biennale di Venezia, Venice; documenta 7 and documenta 8, Kassel; and the 18th São Paulo Biennale, São Paulo.
