John M Armleder is one of the most well known Swiss artists of today. In the eighties he was called the Neo-Geo Pope after he initiated a group exhibition “Art Abstrait” that created a rouse for being reactionary. Armleder is known for leaving paintings and objects as they come. He makes these works without hardly any interaction. With “White Plate” he leaves the porcelain design of a plate undecorated asking attention for the void and its power of nothingness. The work is ‘already made’ as Marcel Duchamp originally called his first readymades.
