ZOER

Né en Italie en 1985, vit et travaille en France.

Diplômé du Strate College en design industriel, Zoer dirige ses recherches artistiques et plastiques sur les objets, afin de comprendre ce que leur vie et leur après-vie révèlent des comportements humains. L’industrie se définit aujourd’hui par de nombreux paradoxes, utilisant parfois l'obsolescence programmée alors que la pratique du recyclage gagne du terrain. Le matérialisme et la surconsommation persistent mais changent de visage. L’artiste se positionne ainsi comme un archéologue par anticipation, observant le devenir des objets alors que la société se tourne vers la dématérialisation.

Zoer s’exprime par la peinture figurative, à l’acrylique ou à l’huile, mais également par la sculpture et l’installation. Depuis quelques années, ses recherches plastiques se sont tournées vers l’objet “voiture”. Il manipule ainsi des carcasses avec lesquelles il joue et sur lesquelles il peint. A force de regarder l’objet se dégrader, Zoer traduit dans son art un goût pour le design autant que pour le romantisme.

Born in Italy in 1985, lives and works in France.

Graduate of Strate College in Industrial Design, Zoer focuses his artistic pursuits on objects, to understand what their life and afterlife reveal about human behaviors. Today, industrial production is defined by many paradoxes, including both planned obsolescence as well as an increase in recycling. Materialism and overconsumption persist, but in a different form. The artist positions himself as an archeologist of anticipation, observing the future of objects as society becomes more dematerialized.

Zoer expresses himself through figurative paintings, in acrylic or oil, as well as sculptures and installations. In recent years, he has explored using cars as objects. He manipulates their carcasses, playing with them and painting on them. By looking at deteriorating objects, Zoer translates into his art a taste for design as much as for romanticism.
