NOTE: 

Adrian Paci tells the story of The Column, 2013, a video installation specially created for his exhibition « Lives in Transit » at Jeu de Paume, accompanied by a marble column presented in the Jardin des Tuileries to the right of the entrance.  The Column is a reflection about the speed with which supply and demand have to be satisfied in today’s economy.

Paci’s video shows the transformation undergone by a piece of marble from its extraction from a quarry to the long weeks of transport by sea, during which sculptors make it into a Romanesque column.
