Samuel François has got same great work and one of the best biographies I’ve seen, here’s a small extract.
‘Samuel François likes to play,and doesn’t take himself to seriously :whether it’s games of hide-and seek (when he installs a pair of legs,the feet in the air,emerging from ground) or when he disperses puddles of detergent products, amusing himself with the multicoloured reflections of the liquids…It is certainly this playful and naive aspect,not to say childish – he loves felt-tips -,which amuses the spectator so much’
