In 1976 Benjamin Vautier opened the gallery “Cunégonde et Malabar” which is named after his children.
Over the year it became a chaotic set of found objects. The walls are covered with many objects, and Ben’s works. There's a giant gnome standing in the garden, old toilets and bidets are used as plant containers. Over the door we can see the words “It’s Bad” with a Rhinoceros-head watching the garden. There’s a bathtub which says “Since 1917, all the avant-garde is bathing in the dirty bath water of Duchamp.”
