Born in Lille in 1966, Stéphane Bérard lives and works between the Alpes de Haute-Provence area and Paris. A Jack-of-all-trades, he works in writing, drawing, photography, film, sculpture, installation, performance, etc. However, there are points in common between all his various areas of work and especially between their results: an economy of means and visual poverty. Indeed, Stéphane Bérard strips the work of art of the principles that usually justify its value – originality and seriousness – and he thereby questions its status. Unlike many artists who use the “untitled” label, he gives special importance to the titles of his works, which give them many meanings and a certain amount of humour and derision.
In 2011, as part of the VIAPAC contemporary art trail project, Stéphane Bérard created Mille plateau repas [One thousand meal trays], picnic tables installed in the Lou Passavous locality of Le Vernet.
