One of Switzerland’s most promising and respected young artists, Decrauzat will come to New York this spring to create a suite of new works. Decrauzat’s interests lie in investigating the status that images play in cultural practice, continuing to address the questions raised by pop and conceptualism in destabilizing the practice of image-making. Taking stake in op-art strategies, Decrauzat literally shakes up the viewer’s experience through dense patterning and layering of effects. Manipulating diverse references from Russian constructivism to sci-fi to 1970s post-punk music, Decrauzat’s influences form a subtle network of visual and spatial motifs. With an ability to command any media, Decrauzat enables complex installations which literally buzz with optical and conceptual weight.
