Lives in Gaillard (France).
Maxime Bondu applies a speculative aesthe¬tics of discovery, which is contemplated, interpreted and distorted through the space-time vortex of a mimetic mirror. If his body of works frequently operates in the vicinity of the replica, the specific field allocated to the latter produces unexpected shapes arising from empiric reinvention or a counter-employed tautology, both eventually generating divergent approach trajectories. Far from the analytic discourse or the well-advised commentary, the tension field thus introduced by the artist outflows the simple registration of historic or social facts, shifting instead towards an open proposal activating the febricity of the already present lacunae or doubts.
