About

In disquieting, entropic mise-en-scènes, Tatiana Trouvé limns the boundaries between the mental and the physical, where material space and form converge with immaterial time and memory. Her situations combine intricate scenographic drawings, sculptures both linear and three-dimensional, and spaces that hint at invisible dimensions. Whether found or created, Trouvé’s “environmental dramas” are melancholy yet highly charged, palimpsests containing echoes of other lived spaces and realities, which oscillate between the real, the imaginary, and the phantasmic.

Trouvé was born in 1968 in Cosenza, Italy. Recent solo museum exhibitions include Centre national d’art contemporain Villa Arson, Nice, France (1997); Polders, Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2002); Aujourd’hui, hier, ou il y a longtemps . . . , CAPC Musée d’art contemporain, France (2003); Tatiana Trouvé, juste assez coupable pour être heureuse, Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain, Geneva (2004); Extraits d’une société confidentielle, FRAC PACA, Marseille, France (2005); Djinns, CNEAI, Chatou, France (2005); Centre national d’art contemporain Villa Arson, Nice, France (2007); Double Bind, Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2007); 4 between 3 and 2, Centre Pompidou, Paris (2008); FRAC des Pays de la Loire, Carquefou, France (2008); A stay between enclosure and space, Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Zurich (2009–10); Bureau of Implicit Activities: Archives and Projects, Kunstverein Hamburg, Germany (2009); Il Grande Ritratto, Kunsthaus Graz, Austria (2010); Somewhere, 18–12–95, An Unknown, 1981, Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin (2014); I tempi doppi, Kunstmuseum Bonn, Germany (2014, traveled to Museion, Bolzano, Italy; and Kunsthalle Nürnberg, Nuremberg, Germany); Desire Lines, Doris C.

This exhibition extends over the museum’s two main exhibition halls and includes sculptural works alongside a large site-specific installation. The first hall features a series of sculptural objects that appear as temporary structures, shelters of sorts, cast from used cardboard in bronze, aluminum, and copper. The second hall is devoted to the immersive installation Prepared Space, which extends over the entire space like a large navigation map.
