Curation, reconstruction and intervention

Curating is an attempt at dismantling and rebuilding. What are the chances and limits of the curator's intervention in the uniqueness, historicity and contextuality of the artwork? Is intervention in a work of art an opportunity for its reproduction and establishment? At the same time, the work of art becomes a phenomenon with its transcendence. Should the intervention be regarded as a secularization of the work with this aspect?
