For his first show in France following his 2007 retrospective at the Musée d’art moderne de la Ville de Paris, Mathieu Mercier has assembled for the Centre d’art contemporain d’Ivry – le Crédac a group of recent works that includes several that have never been shown previously.An uncertain cross between the avant-gardes’ project of imbuing the artistic object with practical value, and the Duchampian gesture of lending symbolic value to the object of everyday use, Mercier’s work is endlessly redefining the production modalities of objects and their passage in the field of art.
