A member of the Supports/Surfaces group in the late 1960s, Patrick Saytour conceives of his work as an attempt to deconstruct form, colour, format and mode of exhibition. He uses simple techniques (folding, burning, solarisation…) and ordinary, “poor” materials, as in this series of immersions. For this work the artist dipped patterned fabric in tar, glue and the paint used for road markings. The kitsch colours, the serial arrangement and the rectangular assemblage on the floor produce the parody of painting and sculpture that is central to Saytour’s critical approach.
