La Rivière’s work is about being restless, bored and saturated. He gets inspiration – besides from his childhood toys – out of the enormous amounts of images, infographics, logos and icons that reach our perception through media culture.

Gyz La Rivière arranges time like a visual archivist. By extracting images and objects from their original context and arranging them in a new, autonomous one, he becomes the master of his own universe.
