DAVID GOUNY

David Gouny is a french artist living in the suburb of Paris.
In 2003 David is called out by a scientific study realized in the United States which proves that when we see in a regular way persons in overweight, we increase by 40 % the risk of finding oneself in overweight. We would thus become obese by «habitus».
Shocked by these societal conclusions, David begins a work of reflection on the overweithness by «contamination».
Then David turns to objects symptoms and causes of these excesses, the perma- nent «king size». Today, the «Fat virus» of David takes the shape of objects sewn by hand with vinyl fabrics, contaminating the references of the consumer society, those who are brought to disappear gobbled up by the modernization and those who bury us by their omnipresence.
