Paolo Curti web:
Bidlo began his "Fountain Drawings" in 1993 as a small group of works after the quintessential l'objet trouvé, Duchamp's urinal. At that time Bidlo put the drawings away and didn't think about them until years later, when "re-informed by the storefront project," he returned to the series. Over the past two years the "Fountain Drawings" have mushroomed into a body of some three-and-a-half thousand images, plus several more liberal interpretations of Duchamp's original piece.
With the "Fountain Drawings" Bidlo departs from his strategy of literal, reproductive appropriations that he made throughout the '80s. Forging successive series based on work by Pollock, Warhol, Morandi, Brancusi, Picasso, Leger, Yves Klein, de Chirico and Duchamp, among many others, Bidlo's surrogate duplications subverted the art market and acted as a seductive critique of modernism's ideals of novelty, authenticity and originality.
