Limited Editions | April 29th, 2015 - 6pm

On 29 April 2015 PIASA will be staging their first sale devoted to limited
editions in collaboration with the artist, curator and collector Mathieu
Mercier.

Over 200 modern and contemporary works, along with objects, artists’ jewellery
and designer furniture, will be featured, and showcased in an innovative exhibition
and scenography concept. The sale is conceived as a reflection on the process of
reproduction and the status of edited works, on their importance, the role of the
objects, and on how they can best be exhibited.
‘The auction concept involves creating two exhibitions with edited works, whose
iconic status or plastic quality have lead to their being considered masterpieces’
explains Mathieu Mercier. They are either historic works from the collections
of leading international museums, or works evoking a certain spirit and whose
artistic qualities exceed their commercial value.

The exhibition will be in two parts: one museum-style, in both its scenography and
choice of emblematic works by Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray and Andy Warhol; the
other in a more intimate spirit, with silkscreens, multiples, furniture and artists’
objects from the imaginary collection of a connoisseur displayed in a reconstituted
interior.

Editions offer artists of the 20th and 21st centuries the chance to ask questions
about the strategy of diffusion. The practices developed may be utopic or political,
and help demanding works be seen by as many people as possible.
