Golden adhesive and mixed media.
The installation inaugurates a series of works brought together under the generic title "Applications gilding". The white of Spain here disturbs the smooth and reflective surface of the gilding to leave room for a possible intervention by the visitor by erasing. The golden frame has expanded to become the surface of a work that emancipates itself from what remained of the very idea of the "tableau" and simplifies itself into a minimalism that marks the beginning of a methodical exploration of "gilding" material.
