As part of the “College and Contemporary Art” scheme, the artist OX intervened during the 2013-2014 school year with the college students from the south of the department. In total, 19 classes from 12 colleges were able to participate in the system during this school year! Guest artist during the 1st and 3rd edition of Bien Urbain, OX took advantage of this new educational experience in the region to reward Besançon and Valdahon with a few bold new interventions.
MIDDLE SCHOOL AND CONTEMPORARY ART
This system was initiated by the Department of Doubs, in partnership with the 19 Center for Contemporary Art of Montbéliard and the association Juste Ici in Besançon, in collaboration with the Regional Direction of Cultural Affairs of Franche-Comté and the Rectorate of the Besançon Academy.
Since the eighties, OX succeeds in diverting the codes and supports of advertising imagery (which inspires him too), with a contextual work which sharpens our gaze and continues to surprise us. His work around abstract forms embraces so much the close environment that it sometimes evokes narratives, comic situations or highlights small or large urban aberrations.
