Franck Scurti uses all mediums indiscriminately: video, sculpture, installation and his work is built around a reflection on art, social signs and the reality of the time. His works are often created from materials and found forms, things devoid of values that he carefully redefines by elaborating each time their logic of appearance.
Over time, this series of works gradually forms a narrative where the associations of meaning between each work replace a style or a genre. This story refers to the Western history of a representation originally established by religious or magical laws. It is crossed by the political, economic and scientific data that punctuate our daily lives.
