Excerpt from Alexandre Singh’s three-act play, The Humans followed by a conversation between the artist and Donatien Grau.

When objects placed on pedestals speak of art in general and of a certain exhibition in particular, the work of the artist Alexandre Singh entitled “Critique of the School of Objects” can be appreciated like a play. The very role of the work of art is then reversed and takes on its own criticism. Alexandre Singh’s installation was presented at the Palais de Tokyo in 2011 and at the New Museum in 2010.
