This title, borrowed from a painting made by the Swiss painter Rémy Zaugg, has probably been chosen for its imaginative power, for its references.

We are talking about the disappearing of white. Is it a color, a monochrome or an achrome? These questions remain unanswered. When white is disappearing, what does it become? Do another color, or other colors, appear in the background? Only one other color is synonym of monochrome and this is mostly the issue of this exhibition. But polychromes are not excluded: monochrome often brings them to light, in particular through polyptychs.
