Hubert Renard

Hubert Renard was born in 1965 in Lyon, France. He lives and works in Paris. Hubert Renard questions art’s underlying narratives, which he then employs in installations in order to play on the codes of exhibitions or publications. He likes to cast doubt upon the materiality of the artwork, all the while challenging elements which both surround artworks and allow them to exist: what we might call their “paratext”. In this sense, he constructs his own potential artistic career by accumulating the following (published and unpublished) documents: exhibition catalogues, posters, opening invitations, photographs of exhibitions, press cuttings etc. His archives recount the work of an artist named Hubert Renard who began his practice in the 1970s and who upheld his presence within the main art movements of the late twentieth century. The archives are presented as documentation during exhibitions or are published in catalogues and monographs, paradoxically establishing the reality of the work in question. We are dealing with an exemplary artwork which only exists in the real world through the prism of its own archival documentation.
