︎Clément Masurier 

Clément Masurier is a French architect and illustrator. Between lucidity and cruelty, his work questions the city and its imagination. Clément portrays the generic city through novel characters, including Patrick Bateman, the hero of Bret Easton Ellis’ controversial American Psycho. An author often associated with Michel Houellebecq, who shares his cynicism and taste for anonymous and unremarkable spaces. What could the spatial personification of the characters of Bret Easton Ellis and Michel Houellebec be? Difficult to say, except in all the ordinary spaces we encounter every day.
