Inventor of a material burried deep inside computers, electrical and electronical devices, Tassou defines his artwork as "Cybertrash"
He creates wall sculptures, totems ans powerful structures from industrial components that were once assembled based on pure functional processes.
He plays with plastic relationships, brings into light the evidence of aesthetics and thus builds the shining memory of obsolete-at-design-time cybernetics.
Modestly but thoroughly he questions art in this new era dawned under the sign of Turing's machine.
Born in Nantes, he moved to Paris in 1991 and started working on object accumulation.
The cybertrash concept appears in 1996 for artwork made from industrial electronics, which he uses in a unique way.
In the first years, his sculptures are continuously exhibited in Gallerie Arnoux in Saint-Germain des Pres and other famous places.
His first exhibition on the French Riviera took place in Sophia Antipolis in 2000, followed by many others in Nice, Cannes, Valbonne and Mougins.
He settled down in Grasse in mid 2003 in his workshop/gallery in the historical town center where he organizes regular friday-night local art exhibitions.
In 2011, he opened a studio/gallery in Nantes where he now lives and works.

From June 17 to 23, 2019, artworks by Tassou will be exhibited at the “Parc des Expositions du Bourget “during the “53rd International Paris Arishow” at the Aserti stand (Hall 5, Location F247)

Aserti Group like electronics. They breathe electronics. In fact, they do electronics maintenance worldwide on a daily basis.
And they love Cybertash. So much they installed cybertrash-dedicated containers in their maintenance centers to collect used components.
They're proud of it as well and together we will organize a private viewing of my latest cybertrash exhibititon "Métamorphoses" at La Passerelle in La Gacilly (France).
I am very proud too.
