Monnaie de nécessité
19 mai - 15 juillet 2011
Clément Rodzielski’s exhibit starts with his invitation, a four-color card of no great note (white/grey/blue/brown) and reproduces it in the space of La Douane, in the form of a painting that covers the entirety of one wall. The invitation card, as with the wall painting, constitutes the “background” of the exhibition, upon which all the pieces will be placed. An image supports other images and, concurrently, the image must harmonize with the existing surface. On the surface of the wall painting, another is superposed: fragments of copy-paste Parisian façades created in the 1980s or 1990s as a result of public commissions (in the areas of Place de Clichy, around Marx Dormoy, in the streets of Charonne, Metz, and Oberkampf ).
