Laurent Pellissier - Paris Ass Book Fair

Populated by queer and supernatural creatures, Laurent Pellissier’s paintings and sculptures evoke the night, the city, the forest, and the desire that runs between each of these sites. Experimenting with variance and seriality, he often uses techniques and materials discovered in the naïveté of his childhood: papier-mâché, modeling clay, linocuts, or pencil drawings. His works make unruly references to German Expressionism, Japanese cartoons, and 80s pornography alike – swinging from humor to horror, melancholy to sensuality, kawaii to the grotesque.
