SEROUX

The art of plural identity:its lives, its works, its outrages & delights.

This collaborative site - unofficial - is under construction. With his agreement, it attempts to present Séroux's highly singular work.

 


We are two young women, researchers in Art History, passionate about this work in different ways, and often surprised by it. In the words of Marcel Duchamp, the viewer can also 'make a work' of something unusual. That's what it's all about.


An inventory is currently underway.

THE PARTICULARITY OF A SINGULAR COLLECTIVE

Séroux is both one of the heteronyms of Jean Séroux, Belgian painter, draughtsman and photographer, and the name of the collective he formed with David Realh, Alex Svi, and the Photographic Collections of Zorah Somexki, art historian Paul Qwest and others.

 

The form

This research takes the form of a series of heteronyms that allow him to visualise a wide variety of his perceptions. 

 

The substance

 It's about a plural expression that offers a view of each of the sensibilities that are superimposed on him, and therefore also on us, by orchestrating them.

 

His archipelagic philosophy

It's implicit in a publication co-written with Elisa Brune and published in 2019 by Odile Jacob: "Nos vies comme événement" (Our lives as events).


FORM BECOME SUBSTANCE

If the form and content of this work seem so singular, it's because it seems "unprecedented" : out of identity clichés, formal categories, cultural fog and social posturing.

 

It acts as a truism: reality is beyond comprehension, with its infinite diversity of possible interpretations. The work seems to embrace this unthought, polyphonic.

 

If Friedrich Nietzsche was right when he wrote that "without music, life would be a mistake", could it be that without a plural perception like Séroux's, we would see nothing of the essence of the contemporary world? Daring, but possible.

Arthur Rimbaud, after "le bateau ivre", abandoned by friends on the pretext of bad taste, took the opposite tack by unwittingly inventing the concept of "MAUVAIS GENRE".
