From March 12, 2015 to March 25, 2015
Opening on Thursday March 12, 2015
Dieudonné Cartier is researching questions relating to the archive, the apparatus, the notion of signature and the status of the document in the field of art. He has created exhibitions of atypical formats, where the goal is to make public the reflexions that gravitate around a work of art. The gallery invites him to install his office of archives dedicated to gravitational documents that more than forty artists will send to him during gallery hours.

This project takes the shape of a process that implements the simultaneous realisation of an exhibition, its archive and the fabrication of a publication. Upon reception, each fax is validated by a stamp, numbered, photocopied and stored in a mural file dedicated to each artist.

The visitor can consult the integrality of the transmission made by each person by referring to the nominative insert inside the file of the archival office that holds the photocopied faxes. Each participant can thus play on a seriality or complementarity between sent documents. Dieudonné cartier also reserves himself the possibility to integrate his own reflexions in fluctuant this body of work.

The exhibition grows in the rhythm of daily transmissions. A closing will launch the publication that collects the sent documents and forms the archive of the different artistic proposals united by this protocol.
