Tatiana Trouvé

édition anglaise

The first comprehensive monograph on Tatiana Trouvé’s work to be published following her exhibition at Villa Arson (November 24, 2007-February 3, 2008). The offset-printed band of color on the cloth cover is proportioned to echo Tatiana Trouvé’s early works, which often featured a lower wall painted in a different color to evoke schools and other institutions. The slightly unusual placement of photographs and text in this book explores the limits of book space. 

“As always in Tatiana Trouvé’s work, the exhibition addresses the possibility of an activity whose meaning and name are unknown. Let alone its scope. Each sculpture is a sign of this unacknowledged potentiality. Each drawing is its reflection, or, on the contrary, its origin. Notions of scale and space are thrown into abyss, allowing us to lose ourselves in random, uncertain landmarks. With Tatiana Trouvé, things are not necessarily placed where they should be. Nothing ever seems determined… This is the relevance of a work that always rebuilds itself without looking the same.”
Eric Mangion.
