Plasma shows works that underscore the proximity of art to the everyday life of the artist, in order to interrogate the effects of varying social conditions on the development of subject hood. Contend enters and exits the legitimizing framework of art. The liquid aspects of the work are emphasized. Context plays its own role. What happened to Duchamp’s Bottle Rack once his sister placed it in front of his house after he left for New York? It probably drifted away, down Rue Saint Hippolyte.
