Gilles Barbier is a versatile French artist with a keen sense of derision.
There is a French proverb saying: “Mieux vaut une tete bien faite qu’une tete bien pleine” (better a well organized head than a filled head). This character has overridden his limits.
Gilles Barbier (Vanuatu 1965, French,lives in Marseille), ‘Squeezedhead’ 2010. Exhibition Twig Gallery, Brussels.
