No pain, No gain.

is a photography project by French multimedia artist Thomas Mailander.

A recently deceased famous French critic once compared Thomas Mailender’s work to that of Bernd and Hilla Becher under the influence of Pastis, a local aniseed liquor popular in the south of France.

« Mailaender’s forum and sphere of operations is less the art world than the rowdier public domain where events can easily run out of control. Society evolved a livid counter-culture, staffed by fallen angels of all sorts. When exactly that culture originated is unclear, but it flourishes and services a fevered public imagination entranced by its own wit and jokes. The majority of solid citizens follow football, for instance, for the artistry of the game, but a hard core of activists revel in its shouted and insulting poetry. If art is to put itself on a par with such a spontaneous and convulsive counter-culture it has to cultivate the kind of suddenness which is Mailaender’s forte. »Ian Jeffrey.
