Nam June Paik
Diderot
Robespierre
Danton
Rousseau
In 1989 Nam June was invited to do an exhibition at the Musee d' Art Moderne in Paris to commemorate the bicentenary of the French revolution. For this exhibition he created a series of his "robot" figures depicting major figures in the revolution. The figures were placed in Raoul Dufy's fresco room celebrating the arrival of electricity, thus the title of the exhibition "La Fee Electronique". A portfolio of prints was created by the artist from his designs to commemorate these figures of the revolution, Danton, David, Diderot, Robespierre, Rousseau, Marat, Olympe De Gouges, and Voltaire. The portfolio is titled "Revolution, Evolution, Resolution" and the prints are lithography and etching. All prints are 30" x 22" and hand printed on Rives BFK paper.
