The work of French artist Mathieu Mercier, winner of the Prix Marcel Duchamp (2003), moves confidently between art and everyday culture exploring the relationship between contemporary mass-produced objects and early 20th-century art and aesthetics.

This compact exhibition catalog features Mercier s sculptural, photographic and wall-based works blending household and industrial materials with the colorful and highly controlled aesthetics of De Stijl and Russian Constructivism.

One series of sculptures, Drum and Brass, re-creates classic Mondrian compositions out of black DIY shelving and primary-colored household objects such as plastic bins, extension cables and stationery folders.

By creating a dialogue between utopian art and design icons and contemporary mass-produced objects, Mercier highlights the evolution of the meaning of modernity, from a social project to a capital gain.

Essays by art historian Andreas Baur, curator Konrad Bitterli and art critic Marie Chènel.
