Les Sous-sol du Révolu excerpts from the diary of an expert by Marc-Antoine Mathieu
In an indeterminate future, unless it is a parallel world or another dimension of reality, Marc-Antoine Mathieu takes us into the depths of the museum, into the bowels of the institution ...
We follow the footsteps of the Volumer, who is responsible for quantifying the immeasurable, and his assistant Leonardo.
They will walk behind-the-scenes of the largest museum in the world to take its measures.
But can we measure the immeasurable?
Rather than observing the exhibited artworks, Marc-Antoine Mathieu treats the museum itself as an artwork, and shares with us his reflection as a journey through the secret of hidden places, as the machinery and the mechanics. From the molding workshop to the one dedicated to the frames,
from the replicas workshop to the masterpiece room, we are invited to an original and surprising visit where we meet characters whose activities are curious and surprisingly disturbing. Marc-Antoine Mathieu's comic art is once again a deep reflection told as a fable which, this time, focuses on art, its conservation and its transmission.
