Paul Cox: Jeu de Construction
Construction Game reports, in the form of an exhibition journal, working methods and influences of artist and illustrator Paul Cox. Written almost daily for the duration of an exhibition held at the Center Pompidou, this text gives a vision of the interior on how to conceive an artistic work.
In a sober and humorous tone, which remains no less scholarly, Paul Cox gives here to see the diversity of the references he calls. From Hippolyte Taine to Hans Christian Andersen via Paul Klee and Charles and Ray Eames, the many inspirations that already nourished this transversal and multidisciplinary artist make it possible to understand the work of one who has today become a major player in French cultural scenes and international. Thanks to an effective and biting language, specific to the format of the blog, it is also the pedagogy of a method that delivers here Paul Cox, where the daily character of his writing makes it possible to highlight the importance of the research carried out by the artist as part of his work and the creative processes specific to the applied arts world.
