Les papiers peints


Les papiers peints, 97x130 cm, 2019

3 photographs, inkjet print on wall paper, mounted on canvass, US white frame


All the wallpapers were photographed by Edith Roux at a social housing project which had been emptied before destruction. Using these photos as painting, creating digital montages, the artist composed pictures inspired by famous artists, precursors of abstraction, such as Hilma af Klint, Matisse, and Sonia Delaunay. Marks that inhabitants left on the wallpaper appear here as trompe-l'oeil. By this gesture, everyday life enters the museum space and the gap between museum art and applied art is being reduced. These pictures are also testifying the diversity of wallpapers manufactured over time.
