Lampoon / Diverso – Lou de Betoly among assemblages of madness and decadent surrealism

I’m collecting a lot of things, and I archive all my clothes by photocopying them. I love this idea of real objects, somehow flattened to be archived. There’s a mix of natural and artificial fibres. Real hair in contrast with the plastic hair of a brush. Or a real flower and a fabric one. Or stones and porcelain that is man made. Lou de Bètoly is an anagram of my birth name. Since I am a child I’ve always loved photocopy machines.
