Claude Viallat was born in 1936 in Nîmes, where he lives and works today. He was one of the founders of "Supports / Surfaces" in the 1970s, a movement that calls for a renewal of art by questioning traditional materials. Viallat thus begins to work on industrial tarpaulins, on which he endlessly repeats the same abstract shape, a sort of knucklebone that has become his signature. Repeated with a stencil on various media, this motif opens up a reflection on the meaning of the creative gesture and the status of a "work of art".
