Artwork > INSTALLATIONS

In the 1980s, Michel Gerard made installations with handmade paper sometimes mixed with forged steel. The installations with coal and other industrial materials re-created the environment of the industrial processes. In the 1990s, he started to include photographs, and video projections in order to communicate on a more personal and autobiographical level.
