Ludovic Chemarin© "Salon©" Contract 21 x 29.7 cm Limited edition of 7 numbered and signed copies and 3 artist's proofs Produced and published in 2018 by mfc-michèle didier ©2018 Ludovic Chemarin© and mfc-michèle didier Principle: To create a – private or public – space for comfort, rest, or relaxation whose underlying and unlimited purpose is to accommodate and present documentation regarding the artist Ludovic Chemarin©. Protocol: The user will choose and assemble: • Two or three (ideally three) comfortable, well-matched and fairly low chairs; • A potted plant more than a metre high: imperatively a Kentia or Howea Forsteriana; • A coffee table upon which a selection of documents regarding work by Ludovic Chemarin© will be placed (catalogues, texts, work descriptions, etc.). "Salon©" may or may not sit upon a carpet, preferably a circular one. A briefcase can be added. The aesthetic qualities of the furniture are to be freely determined by the user (i.e. the owner of the contract or their delegate). Salon© can be activated in any location and context. It is not necessarily announced, but can be by using a label or by being mentioned in an accompanying document (exhibition guide or oorplan). It can also be mentioned orally according to the desire and/or strategy of the user. "Salon©" can be deactivated and disappear at any time. Each activation will be indexed by Ludovic Chemarin©. The user is therefore invited to provide the necessary information - date, location, and context of the activation - as well as high-definition photographs.
