OTTO BERCHEM, DO YOU KNOW

25.01.13 – 31.08.13

Office de tourisme de Lille

Otto Berchem is an American artist whose work explores contemporary society’s social codes and human relations. He conceived the sound installation ‘Do You Know’ as a true investigation inviting us to discover the collection of FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais. This work will be shown for the first time in France at the Lille tourist office beginning in January 2013. The series of questions, which all begin with ‘Do you know . . .?’, enumerates the names of artists with a work in the collection. The seemingly random order in fact follows the order in which these works were acquired by the FRAC; the names are spoken in order of the date the artist’s piece entered the collection. This work will also be presented in the inaugural exhibition of the FRAC/AP2 in Dunkirk in September 2013.
