In his new exhibition “Contenant Contenu” (Containing\, C ontained…) Marc Fichou offers a cross-medium exploration of a loop connecti ng two versions of the same object in space and time\, one containing the o ther. In “8×8″\, a sheet of wood has been divided into pieces to form a tem porary three dimensional arrangement\, which after being photographed in th e gallery is put back into its original 2D shape to become the support of i ts own image. The exhibition space is now perceived as both containing the piece and contained by it.

In the series entitled “Paper on pape r“\, the image of an animal made of folded paper is superimposed on the fol ds that led to its creation. Origami and paper are one and the same thing a t two different times\, in two different spaces and in two different shapes . The final piece is an unfolded print where folds in the picture blend wit h the actual folds\, thus establishing a continuity between image and matte r.

In the last room\, the artist cuts out from the very walls of the gallery to create an assemblage\, which then sits inside it. This\, by turning part of the spacial enclosure into what is displayed\, the contain ing once again becomes the contained.
Marc Fichou was born in France a nd now lives in Los Angeles. His work has been shown internationally and “C ontenant Contenu” will be his 4th solo exhibition at the Robert Berman gall ery.
