UNLIKELY PROPS

Art has always reflected the era we live in.
At a time when mass consumption has reached a record high, art has become a concrete means to denounce the excesses of our society as it is today althewhile offering solutions and alternatives to them.

Playing with the utilitarian aspect of an object to turn it into a piece of art is a recent approach that reveals the issues of overconsumption and waste.
« Make beauty out of ashes » could be many artists’ motto, like Marcel Duchamp who was a pioneer in the field with his « ready made » works, or even César.
By recycling and recuperating objects and reinterpreting their primary functions, some artists have turned everything and nothing into new artistic materials. Creating visually interesting pieces, they invite us to think different !

Artsper has selected a series of original artworks that all have props so unlikely they influence the meaning, originality and esthetic value of the work.
