PresentationYann Dumoget was born in France in 1970. After studying art history he began his career as an artist in a big way - in 1999 he painted one canvas a day or 366 paintings which led to a highly mediatised exhibition in the year 2000.
He subsequently went to live in Berlin, the new capital of the international avant garde.
Whilst in Berlin he mixed with members of the “New German Painting” group and was influenced by
Dag, Franz Ackermann and Jim Avignon. In 2002 he participated in the “Nähe Kunst” project with Igor Zaidel and Lorenzo Gori. During the same year he was also noticed at the “Documenta II“in Kassel
with his independent happening “Doklomenta”, celebrating Duchamp.
Yann’s initial production of paintings, which he considers to be incomplete are only part of
his creative process. He follows the relational-aesthetics theory developed by the critic
Nicolas Bourriaud. Over the past few years Yann has organised gatherings where he asks those present towrite or draw on his paintings using small marker pens.
He then directs and documents his actions associating other techniques such as photography, video and music. His paintings are a device for establishing relations and are to be seen as a social space
creating a symbolic ’collective being’. In this era or cloning and globalisation, Yann’s paintings are a means to reflect on the necessity of diversity and sharing as conditions of life in society.
The artist who currently lives in the south of France has chosen to neglect “white cubes” or art galleries over the past few years, in favour of “graffiti meetings” held in either public meeting places, private households or business locations.
