The maquette is a model for a project that includes information about the construction and reception of that project. As such, it can incorporate a strategic plan that, by creating a temporality separate from the space of production or consumption, opens up layers of consideration that make room for the idea of a ‘artistic discourse’ that critically assesses the project in terms of its opportunities and foreclosures. The maquette can involve manipulation of the point of view, margins, imaginary observers (fictims), and narratives about the life of the art object itself. As Picasso’s maquettes make clear, the work’s dimensionality is open for consideration. Spaces and time sequences may be ‘inserted’ to create certain points of instability or opportunity.
