Paris, 1913. Marcel Duchamp mounts a bicycle wheel on to the top of a kitchen stool, the first of his ‘readymades’: art (or is it?) made from ordinary manufactured objects. One hundred years later, Guillaume Désanges and Frédéric Cherboeuf consider art’s most revered
iconoclast in a one-person show that is at once ambitious, inventive, comic, and poetic. “We wanted to know why the most important artist of the XXth century is unknown from the general public, and produced a show that is as interesting for experts as it is for our own
mothers.” Originally co-produced by le Phénix, Valenciennes, the play made its debut as part of the Nouveau Festival at the Centre Pompidou, Paris. We are delighted to be bringing this production to Vancouver as a part of the LIVE 2013 International Performance Biennale.
Guillaume Désanges is curator and art critic, and founder of Work Method, a Paris based agency for curatorial projects. In 2013 he created, with Frédéric Cherboeuf, the theater play Marcel Duchamp. He was co-ordinator of many artistic projects.

Duchamp a French-American painter, sculptor, chess player, and writer is considered by many to be one of the most important artists of the 20th century. His work is associated with Dadaism and conceptual art. Duchamp is commonly regarded, along with Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse, as one of the three artists who helped to define the revolutionary developments in the plastic arts in the opening decades of the twentieth century, responsible for significant developments in painting and sculpture.
