Memory of the artwork 'Andre Cadere', 2017

Initially created as part of the show ‘Invitation Without Exhibition’ at the galerie Martine Aboucaya in Paris, this first performance consisted in burying the artworks Andre Cadere by Judith Deschamps, Ettouffement(s) by Marianne Mispelaere, La Metamorphose by Claire Morel, From a Bridge by David Horvitz, La Disparition by Angela Detanico & Rafael Lain.

It is built in 3 steps:
The creation of certificates, attesting the disappearance of the artworks.
The burial of the artworks in the floor of the galerie.
The conservation of fragments of the artworks in urns, mentioning their titles and their dates of creation and disappearance.

Through the dematerialisation of these artworks, the artist tries to establish a memory of them.
