About Yves Hayat
Yves Hayat was born in Egypt. There, most likely, were born his first aesthetic sensibility, his first needs for compliance, his first denials. My artwork between photography, installation and "Narrative Figuration" proposes visions where theatricalization is a part of the project. I am a total visual consumer : I film, download, scan, retouch.... as the director of a new reality. Using superimpositions, shifts, misappropriations, I confront past and present, beauty and horror, indifference and fanaticism. Through a questioning about the art/ politic/ media relations, I try to conceive a critical art work where the attraction for the culture of media, cinema and advertising shows through.
