It's all in the box

Loris Gerard, 2008

Since the time when Marcel Duchamp created his "Boite en Valise" in 1936, boxes seem to have been an endless subject of inspiration for modern artists. Not only are boxes everywhere from the supermarket to the office but their square lines and their volume can be filled by all the treasures of one's imagination. The door to art is wide open.
