Le Papier peint Revolution is not a Pic Nic a été produit à l'occasion de l'exposition collective éponymequi s'est déroulée du 16 mars au 3 avril 2005 à LENDROIT.
The painted paper Revolution is not a Pic Nic was published on occasion of the collective exhibition eponym which took place from march 16 to april 3 2005 at LENDROIT.
The idea of this exhibition came up following the viewing by Mathieu Renard a documentary in which Yasser Arafat cried "Revolution is not a picnic". Inspired for this unique vision of 40 years of political struggle and by the graffiti and other committed slogans on Palestinian walls that we could see throughout the reportage,
Mathieu Renard invited 8 artists to think with him on the use of the wall as a vector for direct and spontaneous expression and allowing ideas, sometimes more seen. The only constraint imposed on artists was the obligation to use the wall as work's support.
There is nothing surprising in the fact that the edition that results from this project is in the form of a wallpaper decorated with the visuals of pieces presented in the gallery. This edition, extension of the exhibition, is the palpable and lasting brand that the purchaser will have free use of it.
