Behind the scenes

For those of you who got to see the De-Building exhibition way back in 2011, for the few weeks it was on display before the earthquakes, you may remember a wonderful piece by Pierre Huyghe, in which concentric rings revealed various layers of paint below the walls surface, a kind of archaelogical exploration of the gallery's exhibition history.


The work has had various incarnations at institutions around the world, different every time, and it's latest appearance is in Huyghe's major retrospective at the Pompidou Centre in Paris, France.  I stumbled across the latest version of Timekeeper in Artforum, and look forward to seeing how it reveals itself in future venues.
