Remains of a carton of milk.
Pop art inspired collage with originals from Tintin, Pif and Hercule, Malabar magazine, panini albums. Originals taken from European magazines and comics from the 70s to the 90s. Milk Generation takes us back to the 90’s culture of films and series Hollywood who have rocked generations of French people in search of derivative products. This American dream, this need to find roundness, softness, warmth and the burst of pop colors to compensate for these hard and severe times.
Here, then, the temple of adolescence, but also and above all the cult of American-style milk and this culture of overexploitation which pushes us to separate calves from their mothers. Milk this long-term white poison. Milk, a benefactor for strong, strong bones. A paradox of consumption. A tribute to Warhol and the actors of collage, pop art and all those omniscient artists.
Milk Generation. A carton of milk like a can of soup for a thirty-something. Who didn’t like milk that much after all.
