ABOUT THE ARTIST
Chris Tiboise is a Pop artist born in 1974 in Paris.
He spent much of his childhood pacing the Paris subway between Stalingrad and Saint Germain des Prés where he forged an artistic culture inpired by the Hip Hop movement and what would later be called the Bobo Chic culture of the Latin quarter. It was on arriving in Nice in 1989 that he embrased the idea that "Everything is Art" as claimed by a certain School in Nice. From that point, his interest in art heavily influenced all choices of orientation... He started a training course in a graphic art school, before moving on to cinematographic studies, a professional experience of assistant operator that will last 10 years which will mark an imprint often inspired by the 7th Art in his artistic work. His passion quickly brought him to address all types of supports, steel, resin, concrete, wood, and incidentally photography. All these medias now allow him to express himself on everything that touches him, politics at half-mast, the human being in perdition in a world badly designed by and for himself, people and the unique thought. He claims and protests without a word other than those he puts on his works, and always in English which translates a fascination for the USA that he hardly dissimilates against the background of I love you neither ...
The exhibition entitled Casey 2138
Chris Tiboise immerses us in the world of Lola and Andy, the heroes of a modern tale through an unprecedented installation that gives a description of the imaginary world of Casey Town. The action which takes place in 2138, denounces the faults of our society, in particular in regards to our harmful influence on the environment ... For the love of a hybrid fairy, a mad scientist finds the means to remove a particle from Daylight, making it unbearable to man. This eccentric scientist, a brilliant young girl, a young blind man and a cat called Néroptic, compose the actors of this story, presented in the form of a storyboard that describes the plan of what should have been a fictional film. In a universe populated by the blind and partially sighted, the two teenagers embark on a crusade to restore to the light its beneficial virtues for humanity. The artist, who offers a monumental version of the Storyboard of the story on unexpected mediums, plunges the spectator into a luminous, sonorous and poetic atmosphere, consequently turning the spectator into the inhabitants in turn. How to remain indifferent to The world around us by seeing it as it is... Being able to maintain a "childs vision" appears to escape from the anxiety-provoking climate, presented daily by the media looping through information that is no longer news. How can we imagine having a clear vision when it is obscured by the force of things... Indeed, we are all blind or on the point of becoming blind because we are too accustomed to no longer observing or seeing things. Making the spectator evolve in a world of "blind" and "partially sighted" is Chris Tiboise's way of pointing out the abusive consumer society, our inability to exchange, or even to rise up against what could harm us, destroying us totally...
