Set of gold pieces covering Crap
Paintings, video, silkscreen, installation. EE2011
One day, I woke up with the urgent need to cover everything with rich iridescent gold. I do not know why, I do not know how I felt that day, but I started to cover old experimental paintings. I started a quest : to find old canvases, rubbish, craps to cover them on all sides.
In my studio, it felt almost like a mystical atmosphere. I was offering these old paintings the chance to exist again, covered with gold. They were as well bright as sickening, luminous and blinding. I liked this double effect.
A balance between real gold and fake gilding...
