" The exhibition shows paintings by Birgir Andresson, Francis Baudevin, Jean-Sylvain Bieth, Stefan Brüggemann, Michel Castaignet, John Cornu, Stéphane Dafflon, Philippe Decrauzat, Noël Dolla, Olivier Mosset, Christian Robert-Tissot, Josh Smith, Evi Vingerling, Robert Barry, Ditte Ejlerskov (…) painted over with the same colour of the wall by Claude Rutault.
Thought out as a reflexion on the nature of painting, the exhibition is fragmented in a couple of echoing exhibitions. To begin with, there is a classical exhibition of paintings by different artists ; these paintings are, following the fundamental principle of Claude Rutault's work started in 1972, paintd over with the same colour of the wall on which they are hung, affirming thus a second exhibition. Echoing these, a third, fantomatic exhibition is given constituted by monochrome paintings by Claude Rutault of the same formats than the ones painted over inserted within the cneai's architecture. A mirror exhibition, such as an empty echo of the works' present." Mathieu Copeland
