Centre art passages troyes 1 1 grid Pepo Salazar Lacruz — Centre d’art contemporain Passages, Troyes Représentant l'Espagne avec Francesco Ruiz et Cabello/Carceller lors de la Biennale de Venise 2015, Pepo Salazar Lacruz récole les objets issus de la production industrielle (emballages, structures métalliques en tout genre, quincaillerie) dont l’usage précède la forme pour les redisposer à sa manière. Le centre d’art Passages de Troyes présente une exposition monographique passionnante de cet artiste héritier de Fluxus.


We look forward to seeing you on Friday, January 26, 2024 from 6:00 pm for the opening of the exhibition by Pepo Salazar Lacruz Bag of Bags.

Pepo Salazar Lacruz is a Basque artist living and working in Paris since 2013.

His work has been widely exhibited over the past 2 decades, notably at the MOMENTUM 10 Biennial, Centre Georges Pompidou, Musée MACBA, Palais de Tokyo , Fondation Ricard, Musée CA2M, and La Casa Encendida. In 2015, he represented Spain alongside Francesc Ruiz and Cabello / Carceller, curated by Marti Manem, at the 56th Venice Biennale.

His work is represented by Sabot Gallery, Cluj (Romania).
His artistic practice embraces a wide range of media, from sculptural assemblage to artist’s film, from writing novels and sound pieces to performance, collage and album composition.
His work, close to the Fluxus movement, oscillates between the absurdity of a capitalist world pushed to its limits and the humor intrinsic to his works.

At Passages, the artist presents some fifteen new productions, created for the art center’s space and which could be described as assemblages of everyday objects, most of them the result of imposed protocols.

Close to the thinking of Deleuze and Guattari, and sensitive to the theories of linguistics, philosophy, economics and ecology, Pepo Salazar Lacruz seizes and diverts objects representative of the outrageousness of consumer society (materials or meaningful objects).

The exhibition reveals a polysemy of forms, as pleasurable as it is full of paradoxes.

In 2024, he presents a monographic exhibition, Bag of Bags, from January 27 to March 30.
