Joachim Biehler

Born in 1981 in Strasbourg. Lives and works in Metz.
As often in his work, through the medium of photography, photomontage or collaborations, Joachim Biehler captures a reference, an inheritance, a work. He is truly part of a history of contemporary art and claims his quotes and affiliations. Lightness, humor, derision, complicities, fantasy even, characterize his work, which focuses on issues nevertheless central. Because, as it underlies common representations, the history of art has contributed to the imposition of models, born in the past and continuing to survive. It is time that art foils the models it has imposed to suggest others, freer and more open.
