Artistic categories are the subject of an approach which raises the question of the painted pedestal, hybridisation, etc. So, he applies thick coats of paint to objects like cars, cupboards and refrigerators, leaving them still usable. The works are then both the object itself and the image of the object. Developing this idea, Lavier superimposes and combines objects, repaints mirrors and paintings, continually questioning the conditions of the (re)presentation.Lavier has fallen under the spell of Manet's.
