Point of View -

Contemporary mixed media artist and sculptor Gilles Barbier creates installations that are destined to make us skip a heartbeat. Surreal, bold and provocative, his human formed characters are found in situations that may seem exaggerated but, from my point of view, are meant to trigger our awakening and realization of our, some times, ill natured human behavior.

I also found this video where a curator talks about one of Barbier’s sculptures entitled: “In the soup, a cheddar fondue and three nightmares, speech bubbles (tenant & owner), isolated segments (the infinite assassin) and bananas.”

THIS is great stuff!! In face, it reminds me of my mother coming back from the grave...why? She was famous for leveling my bureau and throwing everything out the window if my room wasn't "picked up." Some of this is ghastly, but in a totally cool way. LOVE it.
