Harald Fernagu was born on the 21st of August 1970 in Cherbourg. He states that his need for creation and expression stems from his encounters with individuals, and from social and political situations, directly linked to his present.
The 17 years spent in the Emmaüs community in Dijon, has rendered his artistic approach singular, militant. During exchanges, the other person’s words are sometimes inaudible, lacking consequences.
The expression that informs is in our attitude, our behavior, and our delays, which force us to move in order to be heard.
Our consumer society moves forward in such a frenzy that our sluggish bodies struggle to keep up. Yet, it is through our bodies that we experience reality.
Art is therefore the best tool for investigation as it is by definition mutagenic, and solicits our entire body. His range of tools is therefore constituted by bodies, (his and his spectators’), volumes, documentary pictures, objects, Dadaistic impertinence, handiwork and patience. His work is always presented to his spectators with spontaneity, albeit the endless analytical process and the countless hours that go behind each piece. Time, precious to all, is part of the piece of Art, gifted to us, so that we may escape this frantic world
