Biography[edit]

Yann Toma is the son of dancers of the Opera of Paris, Claudette Scouarnec and Jean-Pierre Toma, the grandson of Paulin Toma (ex-partner of Mistinguett, member of the troop of music hall " Les Calvacos " and president of the International attractions of varieties club), the godchild of Daniel Louradour (set decorator and artist).

Style[edit]

Toma is a French contemporary artist and a researcher. He positions his work and his reflection on the border of the artistic expression, always involved in political and social events. Toma places the artist as responsible for social debate. As a mediator he can invite people to get involved, to take part of a collaborative energy. Toma collaborates with entreprises, political scientists as well as philosophers. By salvaging material from former electric power company Ouest-Lumière in the early 1990s, he has appropriated a symbolic network, an industrial infrastructure which he turned into his research territory and the very matter of his activity. Toma, president for life of Ouest Lumière, is also an artist-observer within the U.N where he sits as an entrepreneurial artist.

Artistic energy[edit]

Toma developed the concept of artistic energy. He appropriated a symbolic network, an infrastructure coming from factories of which he made his territory of research and the subject of his activity. "Ouest-Lumière" is above all about an immaterial network which the artist established patiently, a network of subterranean resistance resting on the notion of memory and report. His personal but collaborative exhibition Dynamo-Fukushima, exhibited at the Grand Palais for the Heritage Days of September 2011, attracted more than 17,000 people in two days. This focus on collective energy and solidarity, after the nuclear disaster of Fukushima in this case, is the tone of Toma's favorite topic.

Career positions[edit]

The artist is also a PHD professor and a researcher in University of Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne where he manages the team of research CNRS (French national center for scientific research), named " Art & Flux " [1] which is as much a look-out post, an observatory of theoretical and critical research, as a laboratory of experiment and artistic production.[2] Art & Flux (Art and Flows) reports in a critical way what connects the art, the economy and the society. He is the author of the collective work Les entreprises critiques (" The critical companies ")[3] and of Artistes & Entreprises (Artists & Companies).

Collections[edit]

The artistic work of Toma is part of numerous collections. His work is integrated in particular into the collection of Centre Georges Pompidou[4] and was put in the inventory of the National Art Collection of Contemporary Art in 2007. He is represented by the Bourouina Gallery Germany, in Berlin.[5] A monography, entitled "Yann Toma" (texts, conversations, 700 photos and illustrations), went out to September 2011 which presents the extent of his work and artistic flux of the President for life of Ouest-Lumière [6] · .[7] His personal participative exhibition in the Grand Palais Dynamo-Fukushima (in September 2011) gathered more than 17,000 visitors in two days.[8][9] The French national memorial created for the centennial of the World War I is the last monumental artwork of the artist. At night, the monument called L'Anneau de la mémoire becomes La Grande Veilleuse (“The Great Wake Light”) and the memory of 580,000 soldiers keeps shining when the visitors are gone.
