Reversed Concept Art (RCA)

Dimanche 26 novembre 2006

player: Florence Benayoun

To know if the “concept” is valuable by itself, we should try to produce the concept out of an existing piece of art. Preferably a good one!

From Marcel Duchamp’s Fontaine:
Put a trivial object on a sculpture base in a gallery, give it a metaphorical name and sign it.

From Picasso’s Guernica:
Make a painting about Guernica tragedy. Use black and white paint. Do it big enough to impress the viewer. Paint the light as a cut out surface. Cut everything you try to depict. Distribute eyes on the face were you find enough space. Put fingers at random at the end of what should be arms and legs…
And try to do it well…

Picasso Duchamp

Should I try with Piero Della Francesca, Michelangelo and Delacroix?

What can we think of that ?

1/ the concept don’t make the work.

2/ some works could have remained at the concept state.

3/ some concepts can be pieces of art if their statement constitutes their best possible achievement. Of course, this is a necessary, but not sufficient condition.

Blind Love Ready Made

Blind love ready-made

Sex, ready-made

13th October 2006
Two digital ready-mades :

Windows Media Player software, with graphic sound transformation function. An extract from a video gleaned on the Internet, with only the sound on.

Video extracts of pornographic films projected non-stop. The software gives infinite possibilities of a graphic interpretation of what is supposed to be an instant of ecstatic pleasure.
