« Attached to a column is what looks like a signboard advertisement for a key maker. But it is unclear whether it needs to be completed or is in disrepair. With the two works he presents, Arthur Cordier points out that it is not just products that become passé but their advertising as well.

Next to the lightbox he shows a toppled over billboard of which we can still conjure up its bygone functionality. We can imagine the advertisement well lit and placed visibly above the highway becoming part of an endless stream of daily consumed images. From his perspective we are not only consumers of products, but also of the endorsing commercials that eventually wither and fade away. »
