Fascinated by this anachronistic and burlesque activity, Vincent Tanguy decided to document these gestures, these words and her ephemeral power in a country where, through the prism of Hollywood cinema, the car is a symbol of freedom. Vincent Tanguy, born in 1990 in Rennes (France), lives & works in Paris. Using a variety of mediums (drawings, paintings, videos, performances and sculptures), he creates devices that combine appropriation and diversion of a complex reality that he has to decript, to transform and re-stage to better reveal its potentialities.

He recently exhibited at the Seoul Art Space Geumcheon, South Korea, as well as at the 12th edition of the Biennale de Mulhouse 017. He is part of the collective catalog "A l'Ouest Toute" published by Les Presses du Réel.
