THE PLEXIGLAS ASSEMBLING GAMES: is presenting a selection of polyptych paintings-assemblage of small rectangular Plexiglas pieces (17,5 x 35 m) mounted directly on the wall. This work is the important starting point of the work Jean-Pierre Sergent developed later on in New York and that he continues to explore today : images collected and recuperated from newspaper clippings, photos and into the web, redesigned with computer programs and then silkscreened on the back of the Plexiglas panels. Images coated finally with a monochrome acrylic paint and gesso (like in the reverse glass painting technic) to be exhibited assembled together side by side, as a construction game, onto the exhibition gallery’s walls. Art works realized at his Montreal studio’s in Canada, during the years 1991-1993.
This new video series of Corpus-Archives, realized in February 2015, aims to present to the large public a selection of about twenty still images of paintings or art works, completed at several different studios locations where Jean-Pierre Sergent lived in during his artistic career. Places like his former farm in France, his different studios in Montreal, Canada, and in Brooklyn, Chelsea and Long island City in New York, to finally show the work he is currently doing nowadays in his new studio in Besançon, East of France.
