Maurice Fréchuret has just been awarded the Pierre Daix Prize for his book Effacer. Last year, he offered us a preview of his reflections which take an interest, too, in the status of things. In a world where the eye is permanently being solicited, he pays heed to all artists who, since Marcel Duchamp, have decided to erase, burn, cover over, or bury things, not in order to destroy them but, on the contrary, to alert us to the abuses of accumulation, while inviting us to see what is barely visible so that we might gaze again with fresh eyes.
