Save the Market, Nationalize Art Dealers - 2009/13

 

Parodiant l’Etat Fédéral Américain nationalisant en 2009 ses grands constructeurs automobiles pour les sauver de la faillite, l’artiste milite pour le sauvetage, à leur corps défendant, des grandes galeries françaises menacées de fermeture, Perrotin Miami en 2009, puis Noirmont Paris en 2013. 

 

Save the Market, Nationalize Art Dealers - 2009/13

 

Parodying the American Federal State that nationalized its major automakers to save them from bankruptcy in 2009, the artist advocates for the rescue, against their will, of major French art galleries under threat of closure (Perrotin Miami in 2009 and Noirmont Paris in 2013). Such an attitude is so French that the artist’s performance has been taken very seriously by many.
