Benoît Maire makes richly discursive objects that make gently allude to philosophical discourse around repe-tition, reflection, and artistic - curatorial convention. In the video Meeting Sébastian Planchard (2006), for example, the artist meets and interviews a fictional character from his own book.
He has had solo shows at Frac Aquitaine in Bordeaux, Graz Kunstverein and Palais de Tokyo in Paris. His work has been shown in group exhibitions at institutions such as Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, ICA in London, MOCAD Detroit, De Appel in Amsterdam, Culturgest in Lisbon, Centre Pompidou in Paris, Artists Space in New York, Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
