rt4a systems


A utopia researching
times as clouds of
rumors, for works
are complex words,
and arts shifting
languages.

rt4a systems maps systems of experimenting with arts.
Arthur Fouray


PPP+
2024
PPP+ is a game of associations, a corpus of possibilities where prospects and projects can form storyboards, narratives, scripts, events, and exhibitions. 


rt4a
2021
Through the use of an impersonal acronym, rt4a embraces a diverse array of practices and identities, fostering a global dialogue based on interconnectivity and multiplicity.


D*************

D************* *** ** ***** ************ ****** *’********* ************* *** ******** ** ***** ** *’***.


Screen
2017
The artist book Screen emanates from the 2015 Spectre exhibition research, fusing the flipbook, painting and silkscreen formats in one cinematic object.


Exhibition Making
2015
Making and organising exhibitions for others is essential in the lives of artists. Exhibition Making outlines a collaborative approach to conceptualising and organising solo or group shows, successively as a part of the teams at Silicon Malley, DOC!


Arthur Fouray
2014
From the cinematic screen to abstraction and tangible objects, this normalised approach expands possible narratives on the evolution of visual storytelling, playing with situations and interfaces, blending historical art forms and nuanced layers of monochromatic paintings.


a plus o minus
2013
The a plus o minus project explored objects in pop culture as musical or linguistic symbols, offering a critical perspective on consumerism through art, co-envisioned with Nastassia Cougoulat Montel.


mmm
2013
From an online diary to an artist book to a series of photographs, mmm (inverse of www) blurs the line between more than two years of private musings and art, visually coded using typefaces appropriated from artists and art institutions.


Pre–Natal

2011
An emergence as a playful critique of ‘contemporaryart’ where installations evolve like conversations, and labels become soft invitations.

1991-2011
