About The Work

Conceptual artist, and winner of the 2003 Duchamp Prize, Mathieu Mercier’s work explores the notion of abstract painting and installation as a means of representation. This piece is a from a series of works that use everyday household objects to reference Piet Mondrian’s iconic Composition with Red, Blue and Yellow, and his principles of geometric and pictorial arrangement. The title of this series, Drum & Bass, refers to an innovative branch of electronic techno music that gained prominence in the 1990s. Mercier’s reference to music also evokes the Boogie-Woogie inspiration behind Mondrian’s paintings. Drum & Bass Exacompta incorporates black shelves, a blue binder, a red scotch roll, and a yellow paper roll into its designed arrangement.
