Restaurer (2020) // Extract

Still taken from an interview with Lucille Royan, Conservator of the Contemporary Art Collections at the George Pompidou Center, Paris.

IIn the video work entitled Restaurer, I interviewed Lucille Royan, Conservator at the George Pompidou Center, Paris. I asked her about taking into consideration the durability of materials used for artworks in contemporary collections, and the problems that this can raise in terms of restoration.

Yves Monnier:

“From your point of view, is the durability of materials generally taken into account by artists today?”

“Would you have one or more anecdotes on this subject?”
