FARFELUS FARFADETS

Laurent Poumat and Anne Friesz both attended the École Nationale d’Arts Appliqués from 1991 to 1994, followed by the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs from 1994-1996. In 1996, an encounter on a set of school benches occasioned their collaborative practice dubbed Farfelus Farfadets. Based in Les Lilas, Anne and Laurent create sculpture, low relief, and installation work exclusively made of papier mâché. Their work draws from both realist and fantastic aesthetics practice, finding inspiration from animals, nature, coral, and geometry.
