Levalet’s site-specific public drawings use the contours and restrictions of a space to create the unexpected. His absurdist humor appears inside and outside a variety of structures, dangling above passers-by or using objects in disarray to his advantage. Recent pieces have popped up in France and Italy.
“The work of Levalet is above all a work of drawing and installation,” a statement says. “He stages his characters drawn in Indian ink in the public space, in a game of visual and semantic dialogue with the present environment. The characters interact with the architecture and unfold in situations often bordering on the absurd.”
