Tatiana Trouvé: A Stay Between Enclosure and Space / Migros Museum Zrich

Tatiana Trouvé is known for her room constructions, architectonic interventions, and snake-like metal sculptural objects that are semmingly solidified in movement, as if frozen. At the Migros Museum fr Gegenwartskunst Zrich, Tatiana Trouvé presents new works in her first solo exhibition in Switzerland: an installative spatial structure with architectonic interventions and large format drawings.

One of the highlights of the exhibition is the installation in the main hall of the museum, called 350 points à l’infini (350 points towards eternity). It’s “an area with numerous pendulums that have been brought to a standstill, each of which has been sent in a different direction by an invisible magnetic field. The pendulum, an instrument frequently used in research about magnetic fields and often lending a space the character of a living organism, here takes an uncanny, mysterious character. In the antithesis of the rhythmic time-defined beat of the metronome, the organism “space” appears to have been cast into an artificial, deep slumber”. (excerpt from the press release).

Works by Tatiana Trouvé have been shown (amongst others) at the Centre Georges Pompidou (solo show, 2008), at FRAC Lorraine (solo show, 2008), and at Manifesta 7 (2008).

Tatiana Trouvé: Density of Time / Johann Knig / Gallery Weekend Berlin 2008

With the start of the Gallery Weekend 2008 in Berlin, Johann Knig opened the first solo show with work by Franch artist Tatiana Trouvé. Tatiana Trouvé presents new drawings and a sculptural installation which is based on an installation for which she was awarded the prestigious award “Prix Marcel Duchamp“. The exhibition is entitled “Density of Time”. Tatiana Trouvé (born 1968) lives and works in Paris, France. Her work has been shown at the 50th and 52nd Venice Biennale and in the group show “Air de Paris” at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Last year she had solo shows at the Villa Arson in Nice, the Museum Mac/Val in Vitry-sur-Seine, and the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. We had the opportunity to film the exhibition early in the morning on the second day of the Gallery Weekend when the collectors still were recovering from the openings and parties of the previous day. Tatiana Trouvé: Density of Time, Johann Knig, Berlin. 3rd May, 2008.
