Michael Roy

Michael Roy’s work has the particularity to do without doing: a movie without camera, an art work based on images or texts pre-existent, a fiction based on other fictions. He crosses universes. He combines them. He invites us to appropriate his fictions and works with the purpose to let us create ours. No keys are given to understand the reasons why. We can just imagine. We have to suppose the context . Acting on that way, he transformed the history as an anonymous history, where we can more easily be projected. From fiction to reality, from common to personal, using sometimes actuality, sometimes fictions, mixing sometimes written, or images, or photographies, erasing and playing with the traces, the artist builds a complexe and familiar work. We are close and far at the same time. These stories are ours but different, well known and strange.
