Pierre Courtin, an untypical character with an artistic protean commitment, defines himself as somebody acting on the stage of Art. He invests the stage, he acts on it, he seduces its codes. He constantly performs. He questions all the models, behaviors and structures of the various roles he embodies. Artist, art gallery manager, curator, collector but also iconoclast, do-it-yourselfer and amateur. He has a desire for anarchy as well as irony in an artistic and eminently political way; the protection of the contemporary arts as ideal places of freedom, experiments, confrontation, encounters, places where borders are broken.
