Marc Chopy “Au pied du mur” (“Against the Wall”)

Over the course of a number of years, Marc Chopy’s visual work has entailed investigating the relationship between surface and volume in terms of their irreconcilability. For the past ten years, he has focused his attention on “basculeurs” (topplers): “representations of simple geometrical volumes in perspective that produce effects of toppling depending on the position of the viewer.”
He has produced a linoleum floor covered with basculeurs in which the architecture/support and the work itself are inseparable. In converging, they create a trompe-l’œil effect in which the decorative tradition, from Roman mosaics to virtual space of new media, is evoked.
