Saâdane Afif "The Fountain Archives" - FA 0697 B Element from the grid of 16 elements 2008 - 2017 Framed ripped page 31 × 39 cm Unique work Certificate numbered and signed by the artist Since 2008, Saâdane Afif collects and archives publications where the famous "Fountain" by Marcel Duchamp is reproduced and commented. It results in a large amount of pages ripped from several publications that include Duchamp’s ready made. Each of these pages is individually framed. Throught the years this work – in progress generates comments and publications – that can therefore become part of the work. The project becomes in a way a material for the project, the comment of the work is the producer of the piece. In all of this Saâdane continues the thinking initiates by Duchamp in terms of production and reproduction, unique and multiple.
