Lambda prints monted on aluminium, copies of the original title cards

100 x 80 cm

The series Tableaux shows backsides of religious paintings belonging to the collection of the Musée des Beaux-Arts of Caen. Many issues are involved by this work: revealing the historical materiality of the paintings, bringing to evidence their belonging to an administrative system and their registration in an economic context by the presence of traces or signs present on the verso.

By delivering a representation without figurative content- but accompanied by a reproduction of the original title cards - I invite the viewer to project his own image into the picture and thus to activate the work.
