Joke (Martin Lescanff)
Joke is an artist based in Marseille. Calligraphy is at the centre of his research: movements, structures, meanings are revisited and exploited as pure raw material.
The letters, the keystone of his work, are redrawn, destructured, sometimes leaving aside their primary meaning, which is legibility, to make way for the geometric and graphic abstraction of his compositions.
The name of this painting is equality, because we should all have the right to decent living conditions. Many inequalities take place throughout the world, to believe that man is not united by default ...
In Marseilles and the south of France we hold records for inequality at all levels.
We all have the right to equality, let's keep reminding ourselves of this.
Equality, 2020
