The work of the week: Invader, 1997

Mis à jour : 27 oct 2018



This week, Le Feuvre & Roze selects as Work of the Week The Contract – Ceci n'est pas un Magritte (The Contract – This is not a Magritte). Produced in 1997, this work has a historical character because it is one of Invader's first works in ceramic.


The Contract – Ceci n'est pas un Magritte illustrates the artist initial researches about the pixel conversion of image; the tile becomes the pixel.

From a screenshot of an adult film broadcasted on the television channel Canal +, the scene that unfolds before our eyes – largely suggested by the subtitle Ceci n'est pas un Magritte – remains imperceptible.

This work is reproduced in the exhibition's catalog Invader: Masterpieces, held in the gallery in March – April 2017. Buy the catalog on our shop here.
