The human tomorrow – Beb Deum, 40 years of graphic journey
from April 14 to November 5, 2023
Beb Deum’s strange and bewildering characters force us to ask questions and entice us to decipher the artist’s intentions.
Upon closer inspection, we find that we quickly identify with these images. They are a reflection of the current state of our world with its glaringly relevant issues: globalization and its excesses, self-image and body modifications that are supposed to make human beings thrive, the dizzyingly exponential development of new technologies that will have us pushing the limits of death.
Beb Deum is a whistleblower of the future of the human species – but he is also a formidable cartoonist.
What makes this exhibition so interesting is the way it depicts the artistic evolution of a career that spans more than 40 years, finally resulting in the unusual digital graphic style the artist has today.
40-YEARS OF A GRAPHIC JOURNEY
Over a 40-year career, from pencil to digital pallette, Beb-deum (Bertrand DEMEY) has focused on humans and their future.
He deals with passionate societal questions; consumption, miscegenation, trans-humanism and new technologies with an extraordinary artistic style.
Beb-deum’s drawings are challenging, sometimes destabilising. They incite us to question ourselves.
The Human of tomorrow, is that us?
It’s not as improbable as that!
