Jean Bedez graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Art de Nancy and the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2001. He trained in these two establishments, in drawing and sculpture, notably with Chen Zhen, whose assistant he became. The themes that run through his work are linked to the history of representations of political and religious power. He strives to dismantle and reveal, through his drawings and sculptures, the codes and conventions of image construction, and to propose representations of the contemporary world that function as modern allegories. It is first through a set of sculptures inspired by the dominant cultures of play, spectacle and power that he explores the relationships of domination in our societies. At the same time and in echo to this work of sculpture, he develops a work of drawing in which he prolongs his themes. While developing a work in tune with the times, he confronts the older techniques and know-how of the art of drawing. These recent works summon the stars and the first cartographic representations of the sky that he telescopes with the most recent space advances.
