Bertrand Lavier: Atomiums

Atomium (detail), 2007

Over de expositie

Bertrand Lavier (1949, Châtillon-sur-Seine) is a critical re-inventor of the tradition of the ready-made – the elevation of everyday objects to works of art. The artist created his first work in 1969 when he painted white the leaves of a climbing plant in the garden of his house in Burgundy. Lavier intended this as a somewhat ironic farewell to his horticultural background and an announcement of his new life as an artist. In fact, as of that first moment, he was already using paint to reflect reality by literally covering the plant, according to a visible contradictory principle, that would later be repeated in his most significant works.
