Damien Rouxel

Family Stories

"Having grown up on a farm, Damien Rouxel knows the hardships, codes, tools and language of rural life. His visual work (photography, video, sculpture, installation and performance) aims to reappropriate the farm to turn it into a playground where the animals, his parents and sister, the machines, the tools and everything that makes up the working environment become the set and the actors of his stagings." Julie Crenn

"From agribashing to queerophobia there is just one step: rejection of what is perceived as different, what one defends oneself to be or fears becoming. Having grown up an outsider in a marginalized and marginalizing world, Damien Rouxel ineluctably questions the Other." Julia Rajacic
