Benjamin Monti

The work of Benjamin Monti (Liège, 1983), conventional at a first glance, derives from a diversion from the right direction and the right behaviour, which is close to surrealism: consider Max Ernst’s collage-novel, like La Femme 100 têtes (1929) or Une semaine de bonté (1933). If you look closely at them, it is, moreover, this same flavour of delicate perversity which is released; the fruit of the alliance between innocence and criminality, playfulness and cruelty, pleasure and suffering. Which allows us, why not, to look at them as « desiring machines ».
