Multidisciplinary, Benoit addresses areas varied as painting, sculpture, photography, video, neon or installation. Attracted by complex processes, he creates collaborations with other artists and craftsmen.

 

The idea first. Benoit places technique and materials at the service of the most effective expression and transmission of the idea. Wishing to make his reflection accessible to the greatest number, he sometimes goes as far as to insert the question asked or elements of answers within his work.

 

Behind his staggered plastic works appear two universal problems that are dear to him: life and time.

 

For example, the fragility of life is highlighted in the series « Tears for Life »: inclusions in the form of tears. The time that passes is tamed through the series « Traces of life ».

Create to feel alive

Play for not taking yourself seriously

Exhibit to create a dialogue

Inspired by the new realists, the humor of Magritte or the conceptual work of Duchamp, Benoit Dutour uses a wide range of techniques and mediums to offer multiple entry points into his universe.
