Philippe Thomas. Readymades Belong to Everyone
The work of French artist Philippe Thomas revolves around the ideas of reality and fiction. As such, there is an aesthetic ambiguity at its core: all the physical elements involved in the creation, exhibition and circulation of an artwork (the work itself, the artist, the audience, galleries and museums, etc.) oscillate between values of reality and fiction. In keeping with this, Thomas registered the trademark les ready-made appartinnent à tout le monde® and used it to fictionalise his own identity. The catalogue includes pieces created by Thomas from the seventies until his death in 1995 along with essays by writers such as Corinne Diserens, Patricia Falguières, Daniel Soutif and Bernard Blistène.
