System D (uchamp) ou Porte 11 rue Larrey (2021)
Both from Tours, graphic design students, they wanted to participate in the Marcel Duchamp-themed residency and each illustrated one side of this old castle door, recovered on site.
They thus paid tribute to the “ready-made” of MD. This system imagined by Marcel Duchamp in his cramped apartment in Paris, allowed a single door to close either the bathroom or the bedroom.
It was then, not a DADA gesture, but a practical reason.
In 1964, 20 years later, Marcel Duchamp recovers the door and he exhibited in New York as a “ready-made”
The object, always remaining the same, changes state, nature, status.
