Inventories

71 - Hiver 2011

Theme
Ever since artists have sought to bring art and everyday life closer together and turned the “mundane” into an important material of their practice, collecting — a part of many people’s activities — has frequently been transformed into an artistic gesture. The collection of worthless objects, of diverse traces, or even concepts, has become the raw material of numerous artistic productions in which the observation and dissection of the real, inventorying and archiving play a dominant role. This issue can be seen as a cabinet of curiosities where one will discover the traces and archives of practices bordering at times on the obsessive.
