Artwork for 100 euros, at the FIAC it's possible!
Art Market | The 2015 FIAC confirms, at the OFFicielle as well as in the major market galleries of the Grand Palais, the presence of a group of galleries specialized in limited edition series of objects, printed papers, books... These reputable galleries participate in the regeneration of a prospective, accessible market that is rapidly expanding.
For over 20 years, the gallerist-editor Michèle Didier has conceived and pioneered works in book and other forms. She has met this challenge in intimate partnerships with specialized, historic, conceptual artists who have found a space of liberty and creation in this domain : On Kawara, Robert Barry. At the FIAC, she presented Saadane Afif’s « The Fountain Archives » , an active archive compiling all the appearances, from 1917 to 2017, of Marcel Duchamp’s most controversial work.
Gilles Drouault, the founder of the Galerie des multiples has actively campaigned to render art more accessible and open up a fresh, new space in the current marketplace. The gallery explores the different forms and practices that an artist’s work can assume : one-off black plexiglass stencils for Stéphane Calais or a « Rowboat Box » with a vinyl LP, a CD and 10 silkscreen prints by Richard Prince. For the FIAC, GDM presents a digital and numerical exploit, proposing 100 artists selling works in limited series of 100 at a price of 100 euros.
Editor Bernard Chauveau of the 8+4 gallery, works with artists, architects and designers to produce books and objects, making accessible the work Guiseppe Penone, architects Odile Decq and Christian Ghion, Alex Katz and Roman Opalka...
A veritable market dedicated to limited editions is forming around a perfect agreement : a terrain for experimentation for artists, an engagement and a challenge for editor-producers, and a minimum budget for collectors.
