CANAL SAINT-FÉLIX
LA TENTATION DOMESTIQUE.
VINCENT OLINET

While one could easily trace the lineage of his work to 17th century Flemish still lifes, spectators will instead experience these pieces as encounters with exuberant, Baroque objects – ones that are half-finished and decadent, yet refined, where classical canons of beauty are decidedly not respected. What results is an impression of subterfuge and the subversion of good taste that leads to the cheerful and knowing fascination in anyone who lays eyes upon it.

Public Information
If certain works on the Voyage à Nantes itinerary invite interaction with the public (Feydball, On va marcher sur la lune, La Colline, etc.) this is not at all the case for the work of Vincent Olinet installed in the Saint-Félix basin.

We remind the public that it is strictly forbidden to :
. bath in the Saint-Felix canal
. climbe on the work
These two instructions are imperatively to be respected in order not to damage the work and to preserve the integrity of the persons by avoiding any accident.

Due to bad weather, this work is no longer visible.

In the small marina of Canal Saint-Félix, Vincent Olinet has set up Pas encore mon histoire (“Not my history, yet.”). With its powdery pink columns, gold leafing, cushions, drapery, satins, lace and embroidered beads, this work imitates traditional four-poster beds, recalling the comfort and luxury of a bygone era. And yet, though it seems straight out of a fairy tale, this floating and hallucinated, inaccessible mirage seems to float along the Erdre River, as if long-forgotten...

VINCENT OLINET WAS BORN IN 1981 IN LYON. HE LIVES AND WORKS IN PARIS.
HE IS REPRESENTED BY GALERIE LAURENT GODIN (PARIS).
