Renovation

80 - Hiver 2014

Theme:
This issue explore the phenomenon of renovation, which is broached in various artistic practices and experienced on the fringe of artistic activities by both artists and art venues. Numerous works are primarily linked with the field of renovation through their use of particular materials and tools, but also by having recourse to devices that emphasize site, construction, building site development, or the project implementation process. In this perspective, we were interested in texts analyzing corpora of works which — on a real or metaphorical level — question (re)construction processes or directly involve rebuilding.
