Elvire Bonduelle invites us to "Take it easy, Billy" after the artist's infamous "waiting rooms" we are now invited to relax and contemplate the ready-made expressions selected for this show, transformed as text sculptures. Rather than killing time, we are now given the chance to regain it. Let's slow down our life style.
Along with the artist's first wall drawing; "Money/Honey" and a selection of black metal sculptures aptly entitled "Relax Max", "Cool Raoul" and "Take it easy, Billy" the artist's installation is lastly punctuated with a new series of never before exhibited works on canvas: "Instrumental Paintings".
