In disquieting, entropic mis-en-scenes, Tatiana Trouvé limns the boundaries between the mental and 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.

Tatiana Trouvé was born in 1968 in Cosenza, Italy. She has participated in major international group exhibitions such as the Biennale di Venezia (2003 and 2007); the 29th São Paulo Biennale (2010); Punta della Dogana, François Pinault Foundation, Venice (2011); and Hayward Gallery, London (2010). Recent solo exhibitions include “Double Bind,” Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2007); “4 Between 3 and 2,” Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (2008); “A Stay Between Enclosure and Space,” Migros Museum, Zurich (2009); “Tatiana Trouvé,” South London Gallery (2010); “Il grande ritratto,” a site-specific exhibition at Kunsthaus Graz (2010) inspired by Dino Buzzati's science fiction novel; and “I tempi doppi,” Kunstmuseum Bonn (2014, traveling to Museion Bolzano-Bozen and Kunsthalle Nürnberg). Also in 2014, MAMCO, Geneva presented Trouvé’s first retrospective exhibition “The Longest Echo/ L’écho le plus long.” Trouvé lives and works in Paris.
