When Jean de Maximy (b. 1931) exhibited at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris in 1971, he was far from imagining that the work he showed would not be finished for another 40 years. This ink drawing, which he began in 1968, extends over hundreds of 50 x 60cm sheets. Geometric figures move through a romantic landscape towards a distant horizon. Elsewhere they appear in an enclosed, labyrinthine space that is redolent of Piranesi’s prisons. The frieze that will run for some sixty metres through the gallery spaces around the patio will plunge visitors into a mysterious world of constant metamorphosis.
