Yves Hayat


 

Yves Hayat was born in Egypt, but the uprooting of the first revolution in his country took him to live in France for 10 years, but in his homeland he had already seen the damage caused by war, the insecurity and the exodus, which are basic elements to understand his work. Having been educated in the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (National School of Decorational Arts) in Nice, he begins his first investigations through publicity and marketing, tools that would later be vital when developing his critical view on society.
Since 2001, he has only worked as an artist, indefinable, the term that the French use to categorize it is Plasticien.
In an exclusive interview, I asked about the opposition in his work, to which he responded: ?The idea of confronting two opposites as beauty/horror, luxury/violence, and intolerance/indifference. I started from a scene from the movie Good Morning Vietnam. Scared people are put on trial and terrorized by soldiers, the scene itself is horrible, but the director put the song What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong in the background. This opposition amplifies the horror and that ultimately leaves room for the habit of making us apathetic to the profusion of news images.
In his work Parfum de Revolte (Perfume of Revolt), this idea is represented: ?Initially, an iconic image of luxury, beauty, purity: the bottle of Chanel No. 5. But I transform it in some elements: the white label becomes black, the text is replaced by names of places where there are or have been wars, rebellions, violence (Kiev, Homs, Teheran, Tiananmen...), the subtitle ?The reigning perfume? becomes ?The perfume of rebellion.? The image is reproduced three times, on transparent film to be burned like in times of war and later locked away in transparent Plexiglas boxes. My objective is to create the feeling that all of this luxury fades in face of the disasters of war, and also to draw attention to the collective willingness of the West to impose its capitalist system and its culture within the cultures that are foreign to it.?
