BIO
Yann Le Guennec is a visual artist, born 1968 in Brittany, France, where he lives and works.

He holds a Master Degree in Fine Arts from ESA Lorient. He was cofounder and worked for x-arn from 1998 to 2003. He teached at L'École de design Nantes Atlantique from 2001 to 2010.

His current artistic work is based on simple instructions that involve geometric compositions. These instructions are carried out in the form of photographs of arrangements made with available objects and materials in his local environment, and / or digital pictures modified by online softwares. These softwares use available data, mainly the IP addresses of devices that connected to his website.

The set of generated pictures constitutes a visual research on the existence of margins of freedom and action within a defined framework of rules and constraints. While in the extension of conceptual practices like those from Sol LeWitt, Claude Rutault, or algorithmic visual games from François Morellet, the various embodiments are an exploration of possible contexts allowing the existence of a contemporary art practice, mixing analog and digital, included in some banality of an everyday life that is not devoid of poetry.

They did so many things that nobody knows what they have done.
