Vik Muniz: Le Musée Imaginaire

Text by Éric Mézil, Vik Muniz.

The Collection Lambert in Avignon is housed within the Hôtel de Caumont, an elegant eighteenth-century building whose exterior and interiors are regularly transformed by visiting contemporary artists. In December 2011, the Collection Lambert invited the Brazilian-born, New York–based photographer Vik Muniz (born 1961) to respond to the collection and construct from it his own “imaginary museum,” after the example of André Malraux. Muniz duly took up residence at the Collection and his responses to its holdings were exhibited there from December 2011 to May 2012. In this volume accompanying the show, 110 masterpieces by Piranesi, Goya, Monet, Van Gogh, Cézanne, Picasso, Warhol and other canonical figures are recreated by the artist through incongruous materials such as wool, ketchup, chocolate sauce, pigments, magazines, confetti, dried plants and garbage.
