Christian Barre is known for his urban maneuver taking place in public space. He easily appropriates communication strategies to intervene with compassion in the social body. Artist engaged in political theories related to social injustice, institutional ideologies and hierarchical discrimination, his sharp analysis allows him to reconsider the liberalism of cultural production. With irony, he wishes to criticize the accepted representations of models of success. Through a precise study of the alienating and superficial stylistic specificities of the image, he recomposes a narrative device, often didactic, based on the authenticity of testimonies or experiences lived by marginalized people. Consequently, he endeavors to infiltrate into unknown universes implying the intimacy, proximity and private life of individuals. If he favors the social function of art, he nevertheless endeavors to demonstrate its legitimization mechanisms in order to challenge the spectator’s critical thinking.
