Memoire de l'œuvre 'Andre Cadere', 2017

Memories 1 - 5 is an artwork created as part of the show ‘Invitation Without Exhibition’ at the gallery Martine Aboucaya. It consisted of 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 donation of the artworks to Judith Deschamps.
The burial of the artworks in the floor of the Martine Aboucaya gallery.
The conservation of fragments of the artworks in urns, mentioning their titles and their dates of creation and disappearance.

By appropriating these artworks and proceeding to their disparitions, Judith Deschamps tries to establish and guarantee a memory of them.
