After graduating from Caen College of Art and Media in 2017, Clément Davout moved to Brussels to develop his work: "The construction of my paintings comes from a deep desire, an aspiration that pushes me to appropriate a given moment one of my photographs. Once the image is taken, I inflict several treatments on it to create an intimate and personal connection. I pose, what I call "landscape objects" on different levels, as for the building a diorama. " (From an interview with Louise Bernatowiez) For his first personal exhibition, Clément Davout was inspired by Alain Robbe-Grillet's novel, "La Jalousie Published in 1957 at Éditions de Minuit. In this book, a woman, a man and the narrator form a love triangle. The latter details scrupulous and obsessive, the gestures and exchanges of the two characters and their environment, a colonial house on a banana plantation. Jealousy refers to both the feeling the narrator feels for his wife and the strand through which he the spies. The jalousie is a kind of brace that allows you to look out and, for some inclinations, the out inwards; but when the blades are closed, nothing is seen in any sense. It is in this felted and secret atmosphere drawn by shadows of plants, through thin curtains or a dense mist, which Clement Davout lets us here enter.
