Ludovic Bernhardt


"Files on the Internet become the heroes of their own story, which, like any story, is primarily one of possible or real loss." Boris Groys, Art power.

The paintings that Ludovic Bernhardt creates use low resolution internet files as models. Bernhardt copies these pictures - with a strong political meaning - on big canvas with oil painting, and resizes it. There is a question which motivates the artist:  Which role painting can plays front of the images proliferation and the contemporary loss of political meaning?
