Alexandre Lavet develops a practice around the venues he exhibits in, mixing minimalism, contextual and conceptual art legacies.

His main focus is on contemporary art spaces and White Cube ideology in which he explores stories lying under exhibitions, playing mainly with ideas of emptiness, disappearance, laziness, passivity or idleness.

He makes use of facts and details that are relevant or specific to this type of space, making the audience more aware of its surroundings. Combining anecdotes from his personnal life and basic art supplies, he tries to interrogate the notion of artworks, its aura and links to daily activities while making new connections between movements and concepts in the history of contemporary art.

His work is held in various internationnal private and public collections such as moraes-barbosa in Brazil, Carlos Santana Pinto in Portugal, John Snijders in United Kingdom, Clermont Communauté in France or the Lisser Art Museum in The Netherlands.
