Objects aren't very important any more
Objects aren’t very important any more, presented at Artexte, simultaneously assesses and extends Thierry Marceau’s performative project entitled 1/100 de 2-22, J’aime Montréal et Montréal m’aime. Along with a publication produced for documentary purposes, the exhibition embodies the fifth and last phase of the art and architecture integration work (1%) for the 2-22: over the last six years, Marceau developed a series of interventions held in the vitrines that form the building’s curtain wall with the aim of “inhabiting the edifice”, personifying German conceptual artist Joseph Beuys (1921-1986) and taking his iconic performance I Like America and America Likes Me (1974) as a starting point.
