Principe de précaution, Château de Versailles

marker pen on paper
42 x 29,7 cm

Principe de Précaution is an ongoing series of drawings that inventories all kinds of protection devices displayed in front of artworks in institutional spaces: museum, gallery, art fairs, etc… Using a minimal aesthetic, drawings are only composed of lines which differ in thickness when representing architectural volume or protection devices. Artworks are removed from the exhibition spaces that become abstract, full of disciplinary signs that more and more overrun public spaces.
