Artist's Description

Page of diary of “Travaux d’artistes au cours du jour”.

The work shown here are taken from the exhibition ‘Travaux d’artistes au cours du jour’, held at Galllery La Tête d’Obsidienne, La Seyne sur Mer’ in 1985. Five artists in total presented works made during a period of seven days- seven days working and filling the gallery space. As part of this group, rather than produce an individual work to display, Pascale Baud decided to document and then re-contextualise this documentation, of the artists at work, filling the space of the gallery.

“I wanted to be a witness to the ‘filling up’ of the gallery I chose Polaroid to grasp the transformation. Each day at the same moment in the same place I took seven Polaroids. From these images I made photocopies, re-working these by drawing over them with pastel. These I called ‘faux-Polaroid’. " Both originals and copies were then collated into a diary, pages from which are shown on the right.
