The Assistant Pieces
2016 - ongoing
The Assistance Pieces are intended to assist – to back up physically or
conceptually – the work of another artist, while claiming to remain autonomous.
Most often made in wood, the works visualize the often invisible aids used to display them, like a shelf, a nail,
a stand or a hanging system. They are displayed with - or separately from the original artworks, as pieces
that remind us of the absence of the originals. A discussion takes place between the two artists before the work is made and during its installation. It is often during this final stage that questions arise regarding the dependence/autonomy issue of the works.
