Abstract [en]

This essay explores the concept of mimicry in relation to representation, documentation, and the exhibition of art. Through an analysis of the works of artists Elaine Sturtevant and Merlin Carpenter, who employ appropriation and repetition in their practices, the essay examines their critical and playful approach to the art world. Both artists challenge notions of originality and authenticity, prompting viewers to question the value and commodification of art. The essay also delves into a growing movement among emerging artists and curators who replicate an alternative art world, creating unconventional spaces that mimic traditional art venues. It discusses the evolving role of artists as curators, blurring the lines between artistic output and curation, resulting in innovative exhibitions that challenge conventional notions.
