Through the use of different forms of expression including installation, painting, performance or video, Laquet questions the imagery of savagery, of what remains of contemporary beliefs for each of us and creates familiar bonds between the social sphere and ritual habits. Laquet’s philosophical and poetic approach results with works where tenderness and violence mingle closely.
