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, and lives and works in Paris. Recent solo museum exhibitions include Villa Arson, Nice, France (1997); Polders, Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2002); Aujourd’hui, hier, ou il y a longtemps . . . , CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux, France (2003); Tatiana Trouvé, juste assez coupable pour être heureuse, Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain, Geneva (2004); Extraits d’une société confidentielle, Frac Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, Marseille, France (2005); Djinns, Centre national edition art image, Chatou, France (2005); Villa Arson, Nice (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.
