If childhood is the discreet thread running through most of his works, Fourtou is not out to develop the metaphor of the artist as overgrown child, nor is he trying to entice viewers into some kind of regression. In its use of simplicity and recollection, his work seeks, rather, to perturb our present. His photographs go back and forth between miniature worlds for giant people and tiny people living in giant worlds . We are like intruders in room where everything is out of proportion. Originally conceived for an exhibition at La Verrière-Hermès in Brussels (end 2003), this ensemble comprising table, chairs and bed creates a little black hole in our adult consciousness. Contrasting scales, incongruities and imbalances, collapsing time-frames – we find here all his work's recurrent motifs, starting with the child's cabin, a shelter where we can re-experience forgotten games.
