Made up of 225 square meters of carpet, French artist Bertrand Lavier’s recent installation “Composition en Quatre Couleurs, Détail” breaks up and reconceives a familiar pattern: the lines that make up a basketball court. This new monograph features this and related pieces by Lavier, whose works thwart the viewer’s optical expectations.

Bertrand Lavier is a leading figure in the French and international art world. His work is a critical rethinking of the tradition of the readymade, the common object presented as art. His adoption of household appliances or furnishings covered with paint or superimposed as sculptures, and his choice of images and signs in altered contexts, serve as a method for investigating both attribution processes of artistic value and the legitimacy of those processes. This book documents the artist's entire body of work.
