Begun in 2013, the ongoing project Le Musée domestiqué (The Domesticated Museum) is a patient, in-the-field investigation mingling anthropology, literary fiction and performance: an investigation aimed at listing the history of artworks that have never been acquired. What happens when a work, subsequent to an exhibition, becomes part of no public or private collection and returns to the everyday domestic world of its creator?
Combining biographical anecdotes, do-it-yourself suggestions and meditation on how an artwork exists outside the ebb and flow of the cultural scene, The Domesticated Museum is an imaginary institution that transforms rejects into rebuses – into a world of meaning.
