While taking his personal story as a starting point, the artist Jean-François Fourtou likes to play with our own memories, feelings and questions. Summoning our memory, it seems to open passages towards an intimate approach tracing our past and releasing our dreams.

Whether it's The House Fallen from the Sky, The Giant's House, The Beehive, the Nanitos, in a poetic resonance, with power and humanity, his installations concretize the notion of builders of lives.

This publication presents the works of Jean-François Fourtou through more than thirty years of career. It accompanies the reader in understanding his creative journey (themes, mediums, sites, etc.) by opening up to him the analytical fields of his artistic trajectories.

This study is nourished by the texts of Paul Ardenne (who highlights the nature of the artist's work, its motives, its form, its impact), Marie Darrieussecq (who is particularly attached to the dreamlike character of the work of Jean-François Fourtou) and a series of interviews with Isabelle Bouffard (who develops with the artist the keys to reading hidden beyond the first playful appearances of her work).
