Ernest Gachet – 22
by Ernest Gachet
Mention Bien The wall is an assumption. By removing its position as “boundary”, I turn it into a subject, independent from the architecture of the exhibition space and the habitat. This action enables me to reflect on the unquestionable norm that is the exhibition wall. Turning it into a subject/form enables me to reveal the values it represents as well as its cold and impersonal aesthetic. My approach seeks to open it up in order to depose it; to make it increasingly domestic. It becomes the dog that scratches at the door and once the dog is inside, it settles down and makes its bed.
