The Voice of Things
Highlights of the Centre Pompidou Collection, Volume II

Through February 5, 2023
West Bund Museum, Shanghai
www.westbund.com

The title of this exhibition is taken from the iconic collection of prose poems published in 1942 by French poet and resistance fighter Francis Ponge (1899–1988). In it, he describes the beauty of banality and opens up a new way of looking at everyday objects and bringing them to life. Organized as part of a five-year partnership with the Centre Pompidou, Paris, this exhibition brings together emblematic artworks from the Centre Pompidou’s collection, ranging from the early twentieth-century avant-garde to contemporary works that question our globalized world. Work by Man Ray, Pablo Picasso, and Tatiana Trouvé is included.

Le grand atlas de la désorientation

June 8–August 22, 2022
Centre Pompidou, Paris
www.centrepompidou.fr

Invited to take over an eight-hundred-square-meter gallery at the Centre Pompidou, Tatiana Trouvé employs a variety of materials to re-create its floor. On this reconfigured surface she presents a group of drawings, some previously unseen and some made expressly for the exhibition, whose title translates to The Great Atlas of Disorientation. A selection of sculptures and constructed elements complete this fantastical landscape where reality engages in infinite exchanges with its doubles.

This show, whose title translates to In Situ Works, is part of Ouverture, an inaugural series of exhibitions at Bourse de Commerce.

The works, which include eight sculptures from Tatiana Trouvé’s series The Guardian, are installed outside of the museographic framework in the venue’s thoroughfares and passageways, under the dome, and at the top of the Medici Column, surprising visitors.

Bureau d’Activités Implicites

October 5, 2021–January 9, 2022
Musée d’art moderne et contemporain, Geneva
www.mamco.ch

At the start of Tatiana Trouvé’s artistic career, after amassing a large number of cover letters, unsuccessful grant applications, and other written material, she began to incorporate these rejections and ephemera from unrealized projects into sculptures, or “modules,” as she calls them. She later brought together the various modules—whose common thread is the notion of time and memory—as the Bureau d’Activités Implicites (1997–), which translates to Bureau of Implicit Activities. On display in this exhibition are two modules containing fragments of letters written but unsent, unfinished projects, and copies of her own drawings that Trouvé painstakingly made.

Afterness

July 1–October 30, 2021
Orford Ness, Suffolk, England
www.artangel.org.uk

Afterness is a series of new commissions by artists working across multiple mediums, created in response to the singular environment and hidden history of Orford Ness, a windswept strip of land stretching several miles along the Suffolk coast. Protected by the National Trust as a nature reserve since 1995, the Ness is a decommissioned military testing site known locally as the “island of secrets,” where research into weaponry and covert radio systems was conducted between the First World War and the Cold War. Tatiana Trouvé’s The Residents (2021) consists of several sculptures installed throughout the interior of Lab 1, a derelict structure built in the 1960s for weapons testing, now open to the elements, overgrown with vegetation, and partly underwater.

Io dico Io – I say I

March 1–June 6, 2021
Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Rome
lagallerianazionale.com

This exhibition is loosely based on the writings of Italian art critic and feminist activist Carla Lonzi (1931–1982) and insists on the necessity of taking the floor and speaking for oneself in order to assert one’s subjectivity, by creating a single multitude, a multiplicity of “I” that resonates with consonances and dissonances. The show brings together a constellation of visions by Italian female artists of different generations, who, in diverse historical and social contexts, have expressed their own authentic ways of inhabiting the world. Work by Tatiana Trouvé is included.

Recyclage/Surcyclage

June 20–November 1, 2020
Fondation Villa Datris pour la sculpture contemporaine, L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, France
fondationvilladatris.fr

This exhibition, whose title translates to Recycling/Upcycling, explores recycling in contemporary sculpture. At a time when sustainable development has become an absolute priority, contemporary artists are tackling the fundamental question of our relationship to objects with particular acuity. The exhibition focuses on works by artists who deploy waste as an artistic material in its own right; objects left behind or rejected by the flow of consumption thus find utility and a new identity—a true social metaphor.Work by Tatiana Trouvé is included.
