Laurence Aëgerter – Decompositions

Online tentoonstelling
30 mei 2015

Painting masterpieces have this mythic aura that the viewer tries to become part of, activating intuitively their senses and ratio. Last year, in the context of a commission for a private collector who had asked me to work with La Liberté Guidant le peuple (Delacroix) as a reference, I encountered in my research process an incredible amount of images proposing a rational understanding of a masterpiece. Renaissance paintings quantified in percentages; a love-hate story for the art lovers and the artists themselves. As I started collecting these de- and recompositions, I developed a fascination for the phenomenon. Where does this wide spread maniacal tendency to decode the powerful signs organised on a canvas come from? Which was first: myth or ratio? Meanwhile, iconical paintings are reborn to an endless potential of apparitions, procuring me a serious joy.
