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 (b. 1968, Cosenza, Italy) lives and works in Paris. Public collections include Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; Kunsthaus Graz, Austria; and Kunstverein Hamburg.
