Jean-Baptiste Farkas

Jean-Baptiste Farkas was born in Paris in 1965. He lives and works in Paris. Jean-Baptiste Farkas provides services where ordinarily it would be expected an art work from an artist. His collaborative projects are named: IKHÉA©SERVICES (1998), Glitch, Beaucoup plus de moins ! (2002) and PRACTICES IN REMOVE (2015). According to him: - The art object is a burden, it has become inessential. - In the present context, subtraction must be considered a major gesture. - Our opinion of authorship, based upon the idea that there is one single author behind each work of art, is a delusion, a convenient shortcut that has to be rethought. - The exhibition is an outdated stylistic device that needs to be abandoned in favour of other approaches, such as manoeuvre or operations.
