Painter Jonathan Delachaux, bleeds the boundaries between art and life by introducing us to Vassili Lavandier, Johan Wacquez and Na├»ma Bourquin: three puppets whose daily lives and experiences provide the plot lines for his own artistic productions. From trips to New York, Berlin, Japan and India to their band, which provides Delachaux’s exhibitions with unique sound tracks, these individuals hold lives separate from their inventor’s, which occasionally come together for natural reasons of professionalism and friendship. Part performance, part materiality, Delachaux’s tromp l’oeil representations of his companions beg the question of wherein his work lies.
