Lucie Fontaine is an art employer who lives and works in Colmar, France. Describing herself as an “art employer”, Lucie
Fontaine avoids harnessing her practice to a specific figure of the art field, preferring to cultivate a modus operandi driven solely
by her relationship with two* employees, a concept of self-generated labor similar to the Master-Slave dialectic presented by
Hegel is his master-piece, The Phenomenology of Spirit. Her two* art employees like to define her as the Jamie
Lynn Spears of contemporary art: “pregnant and in search of easy success”. Thus, Lucie Fontaine incarnates the following three
The anti-hierarchical perception of the art field, where artists, curators, gallerists, collectors, editors and critics are all
considered “players” in the same game.
The theory of expanded practice, in which the artist is not only considered the “creator” of an artwork, but also a cultural
operator able to write, manage galleries, curate, collect, and so on.
The consideration of the entire discourse around the artwork: conception / creation / production / presentation / distribution /
communication / promotion.
