Hubert Duprat according to Martin Herbert
"Many human problems stem from forgetting the past. The bothness of Duprat’s work is operant on many registers: it equalises artist and bug, artist and craftsperson, artist and inventor/tinkerer in the Renaissance manner, culture and nature, the synthetic and the organic, past and present, artistry and ethnography, apocalypse and abstraction, order and chance, understanding and ambiguity, habitat and artwork, hollow tube and illusory white cylinders."

Perfect Fit
Kapwani Kiwanga according to Sarah Rifky
"Flowers for Africa marks a pivotal moment in Kiwanga’s practice; the whiff of disillusion and doubt marks a certain turn in sensibility. In plain terms, the work, a conceptually dry gesture, deals with the decolonization of African nations. In other ways, it hints at how Kiwanga’s stakes out her own concerns within the institution of art." Read more on TextWork.


Upcoming essays:
Julien Creuzet according to Elizabeth A. Povinelli
Jean-Charles Hue according to Chris Sharp


TextWork aims to foster and support the work of artists active in the French art scene through the publication of critical essays produced by international writers. With this program, the Ricard Foundation reinforces its commitment of over 20 years to supporting and disseminating this art scene. TextWork is initiated in partnership with the French Ministry of Culture.
