Enthralled by the concepts of rhizome and proliferation as well as transformation, Fabrice Hyber tries to convey a thought in the process of being born. Thus a creative energy that comes from movement, displacement, and slippage, or even drifting, emanates from this protean work – at the frontiers of drawing, photography, video, sculpture, painting, and performance. Since the start of his career in the 1980s he has created hybrid works made from different materials and mediums, based on a network of unexpected derivations and associations. Drawings, photographs and objects pile up and contaminate one another, transforming the pictorial space into a mental figure, the expression of work inside the artist’s head. These homeopathic paintings, a story-board with many entries, demonstrate the effervescence and dynamism of the artist’s thinking.
Fabrice Hyber is coming back with the opening of several major solo exhibitions in autumn 2012. This season ushered in by the Palais de Tokyo on September 28, 2012 will continue at the Fondation Maeght with a retrospective devoted to homeopathic paintings ‘‘Essential (Homeopatics Paintings)’’ from October 06, 2012 to January 06, 2013, at the Mac-Val with the exhibition «Prototypes d’Objets en Fonctionnement» from October 20, but also at the Institut Pasteur, in collaboration with the Manufacture de Sèvres.
