Case Study: Marcel Duchamp Postcard

11th October 2016
Archive, Display, Plinth

To mimic the original display of the 1918 Marcel Duchamp piece, ‘A regarder d’un œil, de près, pendant presque une heure’, we intentionally cracked a piece of laminated museum glass to create the effect of broken glass.  The artwork, which is a postcard of the original piece, published by Duchamp, is mounted on a separate sheet of Artglass, the unbroken side of the laminated glass faces out so that the piece can be cleaned.

The piece is housed in a double sided oak frame with a black stain, with supports constructed from untreated mild steel.
