Francoise Petrovitch

Date of birth : 1964

Since the middle of the 1990s Françoise Pétrovitch has used an artistic vocabulary based on adolescence, childhood or, by extension, stories and their symbols, less by desire to discuss the "subject" than to challenge the "genre".
These figures of girl and boys, which we find in a recurring way in the works on paper, are archetypes from throughout history. They are figures in action in so many universal actions. From one work to the next, these simply gendered archetypes (male/female) are ultimately interchangeable.
