21st Century Kids: Pierre Bismuth ‘Follow me’ 2010
Relating to the artist’s series of works Following the right hand of…, Bismuth invites young visitors to trace with a felt tip pen the movements of a character or object starring in classic motion pictures. The end result is a surprising abstract drawing. Disconnected from what originally informed the drawing, the finished result takes on a new life of its own.
