Alphabet Truck

Alphabet Truck

Avec cette première édition de l‘Alphabet Truck, Eric Tabuchi
achève un travail qui représente plusieurs milliers de kilomètres
parcourus ces quatre années passées.
Chaînon manquant entre The back of all trucks passed while driving
from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara de John Baldessari et Auchan,
l’alphabet des marques de Claude Closky, Eric Tabuchi pousse les
logiques burlesques ou compulsives de ses pièces en une quête
presque dérisoire de ce qui pourrait constituer ses origines danoises
et japonaises.
À travers le langage (Alphabet) et le déplacement (Trucks), Alphabet
Truck interroge donc, au-delà de son aspect formel et référentiel,
les notions d’appartenance, d’identité et de mixité.

With this edition of Alphabet Truck, Eric Tabuchi completes a work
representing several thousands of kilometers traversed over these
past four years. The missing link between The back of trucks passed
while driving from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara by John Baldessari
and Auchan, the letters of Claude Closky, Eric Tabuchi pushes the
burlesque or compulsive logic of his piece in an almost derisory
search for what could constitute its Danish and Japanese origins.
Through language (Alphabet) and displacement (Trucks), Alphabet Truck
therefore questions, beyond its formal aspects and references, the
notions of membership, identity and coeducation.
