Behind the scenes of the installation Hubert Duprat – Retrospective at the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris September 2020 – February 2021
“Here we have a summary of the lines of force of a body of work both openended and rhizomatic, a unifying of the monumental and the miniature, of purity of line and mannerist virtuosity. Sumptuous, demanding and complex, the Duprat oeuvre also draws inspiration from chance and the empirical, combining the discovery of objects, remnants and texts in a testing-out of matter, technique and dexterity” – Jessica Castex.
Bertrand Prévost is a lecturer in art history and aesthetics at the University of Bordeaux-Montaigne. He has just published an essay on the work of Hubert Duprat: Marqueterie générale. Hubert Duprat (éditions La Part de l’Oeil, 2020).
