Morgane Tschiember’s solo show Rolls and Bubbles opened at Galerie Loevenbruck in Paris on June 8, 2012. Huge steel mesh tubes were created and hung on the walls. Used as rollers, the woven steel was dripped with oil and water based paints. As the steel was rolled, the paints were forced together without mixing. The audience is presented with a scene of material aggression and resistance in an attempt to merge that which will not. On the floor, wooden blocks are covered by rounded glass bubbles that seared and blackened the wood where the glass expanded and cooled after it was blown. The sculptures are surreal in appearance and about a dozen are scattered beneath the viewer, juxtaposed with the large cylindrical metal rollers hung around the room. As in previous exhibitions, Tschiember continues to use painting and sculpture within an artistic process that troubles material forms and explores the space between cohesion and opposition.
