Prescriptions pour un bon ordre social

“Les Prescriptions” is a series of industrially-produced engraved plastic signs similar to those found in institutional and commercial buildings. These are signs that, in everyday life, advise us to wash our hands, or forbid us to open a door under penalty of fine. But here the commands are of a different sort. Gleaned from advertisements or magazine articles, truncated and excised from their original context, their message is drained of clarity. Only the commanding tone remains.
