Claude Viallat was born in 1936 in Nimes, France, where he continues to live and work.
He is one of the founders of the Supports /Surfaces movement in the 1970s, which called for art to renew itself through a deconstruction of traditional materials. Viallat started to work on industrial tarp, endlessly repeating the same abstract pattern, resembling a small bone, which became his signature.
Stencilled repeatedly onto a range of supports, the pattern asks us to re ect on the meaning of the creative act and the status of the work of art.
