Through more than 80 international artists and 150 works, the simple everyday object (pen, razor, lighter) becomes a medium of creation. Artists transform, transpose, transfigure. The exhibition is their laboratory. Through a stroll through plural and unsuspected universes, this collection is eclectic and abundant. The artist diverts the object from its original function, reinvents it and encourages us to decompartmentalize the boundaries of drawing and painting, writing and image, design and art.
