« Le clou » at the MuCEM, Marseille.
Among the countless objects kept in the MuCEM collections, there are over four thousand nails, but also objects that divert this rudimentary and familiar tool in an amazing way.
For the exhibition, the museum has imagined a display which plays on the codes of the museum and contemporary art hanging to establish a link between some of these hidden treasures with works of modern and contemporary art from public and private collections or produced for the occasion. Symbol by excellence of the hooking action, the nail becomes the tool of a poetic and unusual meditation on how the show transforms our view on objects.
Until the 24th of June 2016.
