Fabien Verschaere was born in born in 1975 in Vincennes, and currently lives and works in Paris. Verschaere’s body of work explores the human condition. Traversing a space between dreams and nightmares, his work invokes the world seen through the eyes of a child scarred by long stays in the hospital. Using imaginary and fantastic codes with continuous references to pop culture, Verschaere projects the viewer into a child’s dream, a world inhabited by hybrid creatures, monsters and strange animals – all fruits of his wild imagination.
Through these creatures he creates his own mythology: a theatre of emotions and intimate experiences that seems to be animated by a play of contradictions: between beauty and repulsion, life and death, humor and anguish. Verschaere faithfully produces his world through watercolors, drawings, paintings on canvas, installations, and film. Viewers are thus invited to plunge into this dreamlike world.
