La Chose Encadrée can be translated by ‘The framed thing’ ; but what is that ‘thing’ which happens to be framed? Is it the artwork itself or its meaning? The frame along with the plinth are themselves, artefacts, elements of the exhibiting process made to encourage the close observation of the work of art. A frame is commonly made of wood or metal, allowing the work to be shown, protected and to look even smarter.
Obviously the frame can be different things and act differently to follow a specific purpose! In the case of a painting, an untouched part of the paper or canvas can play the role of frame, it can be self contained in the work and depends on the artist. In a show, the frame can be the context, the history of the space, the surrounding pieces or the curatorial concept or even the publication that goes along with it. La chose encadrée will explore the idea of the frame as a playing field.
