Since the beginning of the century, artistic creation has become a behavior: acting like an artist has become more important that the production that justified this status. Imbued with this power of fascination, artists like Arman set their seal on products that derive from our relationship to objects. Unlike before, when art required artists to transfer the outside world as well as their inner one onto the canvas with so little means, today it is enough to manipulate objects. What did Arman do? First, imprints, traces of objects covered with ink on paper. Then he appropriated a space by entirely filling it up with waste and trash: the full that follows Yves Klein’s empty. Very logically, he materialized the empty through a series of works, the “Inclusions”. They were pieces of waste enclosed in a box and sealed in plastic. The full is also about accumulation, piling up the same object to saturation, and allowing objects to fully express themselves through their form.
