Contradictions

Description

There is a widely held notion that all forms of reproduction necessarily result in a loss of originality. But there are actually some unexpected sides to the potential for global dissemination — including in the way it questions the very nature of creativity. This exhibition takes visitors on a journey to the heart of the artistic act.

Reproduction opens possibilities of variation, experimentation, regret, surrender… Above all, it requires a certain flair in the mastery of technique. Because whether to make prints, jewellery, clocks or medals, the artist’s hand has its limitations, and the creator’s vision will run into a number of constraints. Making art all the more valuable!
