The artwork is about positioning on a wall a series of patterns
in a sticker form on the indicated locations.
To do this, one firstly paints the entire wall x in a colour
z, left to the choice of the collector. (All colours are authorised,
including white). Then, using an indelible pencil, one draws
a grid in the middle of the wall x, made of 4 parallel vertical
lines every 95,7 cm. Then equally parallel, a series of horizontal
lines this time shall cut the wall vertically every 30 cm
starting by the central line separating into two parts the
wall x, from the ceiling to the floor. If the ciling as mouldings,
one shall stop the lines here. If there is a skirting board
between the wall and the floor, the drawing shall stop at
the board. One notices that the patterns are divided into
2 equal groups.
The first (type 1) corresponds to a series of motifs 30 cm
high by 26,1 cm wide each bordered by three 8,7 cm wide vertical
strips. The median strip is covered in white ink (or paint
?). The second group corresponds to a series of motifs (type
2) identical to the first except for the painted strips that
are in this group the 2 strips at the extremities, thus leaving
the median strip transparent. These patterns shall be placed
starting from the upper left side of the left vertical column
of the grid just drawn. On the left then lined one below the
other and on every other space starting from the first upper
left (if it is inferior to 30 cm, one shall cut the pattern
according to the space to be filled in), one shall stick only
type 2 patterns. Then along the vertical column n°2, one
shall align in the same way alternately on every other line
square and staggered, in relation to the first disposition
on the extreme left, all the type 1 patterns. On the third
column of the grid, one shall place a series of type 2 patterns
exactly in the same way as on the very first line on the left.
Lastly along the line on the right (n°4), one shall align
the type 1 patterns exactly like those lined up on column
n°2 on the left.
The white painted part on each one of the patterns visually
show up in contrast to the coloured background of the wall x.
The colour of the wall then shows through the transparent parts
of each of the patterns. If all of these patterns are placed
(including the grid) on a white wall, the creation even though
visible, shall be extremely discrete visually speaking and this
may be considered as satisfactory. Please use the drawing included
for the construction of the artwork. If the patterns of both
types are used in the construction of the visual artwork this
also applies to the colour of the wall x and the drawing of
the grid on which the patterns are stuck on, they are not in
any way as such and before the collage invested with an artwork
status. It is equally understood that each piece, once painted,
drawn and the patterns stuck, is an original artwork, different
from any other. The result of this mecanism of unlimited
edition, shall produce a unique work of art each time.
It is to be noted that the motifs are arranged on the wall in
the exact position they would be in if they were part of a grid
and sticker decorations covering the entire wall. It would then
more closely resemble a tapestry, or rather wallpaper.
