Working fake artworks that exist for real, Ledoux creates an illusion that reintegrates the art market and cultural events. All these works are put together as various paragraphs of a broader chapter, questioning about what makes an Artwork out off the artwork.
After a show at the BF15 art center in Lyon last year and at the Casino art center in Luxembourg, P. Nicolas Ledoux presents for the first time in Paris pieces from the Ludovic Chemarin© project. Ludovic Chemarin is the so-called bankrupted artist bought back by Ledoux.
