“My artistic practice often consists in creating with things that already exist,” explains Prosper Legault. Working first and foremost on the city, he first took photographs of illuminated stores at night then started to collect the neon signs themselves, a symbol of the constant agitation of modern cities. With sharp critical creativity, he juxtaposes these urban fragments to give them a new signification in a process of restoration of reality reminding of the aspirations of the 20th-century avant-garde movements. “Je te fais marché, (de l’art contemporain)” displays the poetic, humoristic, both tender and disillusioned outlook of the artist on his close surroundings and the modern way of life.
