The interstitial and mimetic works by Yann Sérandour originate from existing works, publications and products which he reactivates and whose issues are changed. Embracing a conceptual view of art, he extends some historical expressions in other directions through infiltration, parasiting and "hijacking" operations. On one hand, these tactics are a way to reactivate —and sometimes to modify— the latent meanings of a work and, on the other hand, to interrogate the transformations of the historical, political and aesthetic issues associated with it. He has a close relationship to books and to the literature on art history.
