“Clever although Kourkovian, Guillaume Clermont’s work is like the chef’s suggestion: an unsurprising repetition which we accept, for lack of an alternative. The artist is delighted to remind us, in this back alley, that he has been obstinately painting the same skull for the past ten years. It just go to show that if the kitchen is clean yesterday’s leftovers can becomes tomorrow’s chowder.”

Fiona Darbon Van Maercke, November 2015
