Work from the series "Taquiner la vie" by Benoît Dutour. It pays tribute to Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring.
It should be noted that each small square in this work can be moved to the left or right, up or down, as in a traditional game of "Taquin".
Personal anecdote from the artist:
"As a child, I went to the Louvre with my grandfather. I was very excited to see the 'Mona Lisa' in real life. But there were so many people there that I had trouble getting close. She was so small, so far away, so protected, so inaccessible. I was very disappointed! But this experience was inspiring. Through this series "Teasing Life", I desecrate the icons of art history and invite the viewer to play with them."
