The Moya affair
Exhibition until Mars 11, 2018, Lympia Art Gallery, Nice harbor, 2 quai Entrecasteaux, 06300 Nice, open from Wednesday to Sunday, from 10am to 12.30am and from 1.30pm to 5pm, phone : 04.89.04.53.10, admission free.
The Lympia Art Gallery welcomes until Mars an artist who think about the part playing by the artist in the medias. Moya interest himself for a long time about medias and publishes in 1982 at the Bramstacker editions a book entitled "Theory of a Fine - Art model" in which he estimates that the media is more important than the message. Successively he concentrates his attention on TV for his immediacy, on the Internet ancestor the minitel, on computers and on video games. Moya must admit that he improves a huge admiration for the famous French TV host Guy Lux and considers him as an artist.
Moya doesn't only underlines the part playing by the medias because he estimates that at the end the real media is the human being and he includes himself inside. He introduces himself since 1974 when he keeps waiting nude at the Villa Arson but he will go more longer when he creates his ridiculous alter ego influenced by the Pinocchio character and put it inside every canvas he paints. Moya does like that because he wants to live inside the picture and want to let a track for the future generations.
