Tapis gris pour cinq personnes (The Rug For Five People)

Nicola L.


Sculpture, 400 x 400 cm.
Materials: acrylic fur

Collection: Collection Fonds régional d'art contemporain Bretagne, Rennes.

Tapis gris pour cinq personnes was first activated during "SaltoArte", the performative opening night of the exhibition "Je/Nous.Wij/Ik" (Museum van Elsene, Brussels, 23 May - 13 July 1975). At this groupexhibition, two works by Nicola were shown; La Chambre en Fourrure, which was first shown in 1970 in the Galleria Apollinaire in Milano, and in the basement Nicola placed four banners on two poles, as if for a demonstration. The banners each contain a sentence: Nous voulons voir [we want to see], Nous voulons sentir [we want to smell], Nous voulons entendre [we want to hear], Nous voulons toucher [we want to touch]. The stylised heads seem to want to get their message across by wriggling with great difficulty through the canvas.
