Fred Garnier’s plastic work draws its inspiration from the world of childhood, with its word games and hidden meanings, but also from our contemporary adult world and all its paradoxes.
The series “les façades” is a proposal that links these two worlds. The background of the current series deals with the issue of global warming, through the facades of buildings, most often existing, on which come to life scenes of meetings of miniature characters. Their dialogue takes place in front of an urban art creation, meaningful, affordable and identifiable to all.
These buildings, these urban creations magnify buildings worn by time, immersed by the rising waters. A sort of survival space, a refuge for these figurines, toys of our contemporary society.
These scenes are at the same time childish, serious and pose more widely the question of our difficulty as adults to keep a child’s soul where the world is beautiful and where everything is still possible.
