Le rappel à l'ordre is a film about the packing, storage, and transportation of works of art. Single-channel video works are thetraveling work by definition. On the other hand, traditional artworks with a strong physical presence need special packing to survive and sophisticated logistics to arrive from place to place. The film addresses the complex web of shipping that lies behind the international art world and traveling exhibitions while being, in itself, one of the most portable kinds of artworks there is.
The film, in a edition of 5 plus on artist proof, comes in a crate accompanied by an edition of photographs, printed in pigment inks on Hahnemühle cotton paper.
