"(The) world of travellers enables me to develop several themes recurrent in my work: belief, crooks, popular and invented speech, music and people who have a certain bent for fantasy". Jean-Charles Hue Oscillating between fiction and documentary Hue's focus on the Hispanic and French Gypsy communities captures difficult moments and unsettling characters. Rather than falling into the traditional trap of artist as ethnographer Hue's concentration on visual texture and his own gypsy heritage forces the viewer into a state of moral hesitation.
Jean-Charles Hue, a free online exhibition from 14th October to 3rd November 2009 at www.tank.tv, is part of tank.tv's2009 Solo Show Programme.
