    About The Work

    Vogue la galère results from a specific project which has been discussed with Bernard Chauveau Éditeur and Le Néant, éditeur. For that occasion, Lawrence Weiner wished to use an iconographic material he has been saving since the 1970's: a series of maps of various countries. The work, a series of six posters, forms a sole and singular proposition. To these graphic elements which evoke the world, the idea of travelling through the universe and of the impossibility of finding one's bearings in the fluxes which compose our everyday life, he adds a few aphorisms which all reassert the idea that these works are comparable to maritime navigational maps while remaining authentic sculptures. The perception of a navigational map is particularly reinforced by the printed shadow which suggests “successive foldings”, and in the plastification of these works. Weiner insisted on counterbalancing this “coldness” with interventions in colored pencils, something generally absent in previous works.
